I agree, but my client doesn't. She insists the she will always clinch the sale if someone call, whereas prices just allow someone to find a better one. I guess she has a point considering all the companies out there like biztravel, microsoft.com/expedia/ and travelocity.

I would be looking for then click on the Shop&Restoration Tour Button. When your get there click on the Restouration tour (Not Shop Tour) and you will see what I mean. You will notice as you are touring it will give you the package deals. I want to know what it is going to cost me.

I clicked on your page darryl- I've never seen a page that huge!!! It was spread out to about 2000 pixels. Your restoration tour looks great. The pop up window on vette photo/music gallery is a little big for my window - definatly too big for anyone using 640x480! The sound loaded really quick (10 seconds or so). I'm impress. A might want to use that on my bands site soon! I have a 36.6 modem. (not problem with the speed of your site loading)

O.K- I guess I did delete the image folder- Thanks

How does it look now? Does the Javascript screw the page up completely or do single images still load?

The reason that I used the frames (which I too normally try not to use) is that purpose of the site is not to inform of the countries, but rather to get the surfer to pick up the phone and call (or E-mail). Having this info on hand reminds them that they are infact on a travel agents site- not one of the 30 other "about australia sites the may be simultaneously viewing. I guess I could do without the roll overs though huh? I have little dashes on the bottom of the first page linking to the bodies in the frame pages which allows search engines to get into them.
