Hi Linda,

The site looks great. I like it a lot. I'm on Windows NT 4.0, Netscape 4.7, and 1024x768. Two suggestions:

1 - The page seems optimized for a 800x600 screen (a lot of blank space to the right of the right sidebar on higher resoltions). I assume the page is built with tables which should be set to a relative width (like 90-100%) as opposed to an absolute width (like 800 pixels). This method allows tables to expand or contract based on the user's screen resolution.

2 - Lose the hit counter. They're generally inaccurate, and in my opinion, unprofessional. Page hits can best be determined by server logs. Visitors really don't care how many hits a page gets anyways. Otherwise the site looks great!

Hope this helps!
