Looks cool, only comment would be that I'm not a fan of fixed width tables to format a page. Might look great on 800x600 but on my 1152x864 display there's a lot of "dead" area either side. I understand why you've gone that way, especially with your nice graphics, but that's just my 2cents worth ;)

i run at 1280*1024 so I understand what you are saying, however the majority of users are stuck at 800*600 so like a lot of websites on the net I've used fixed tables that won't need horizontal scrolling at that resolution. It also makes it easier to fit content exaclty how I want it. :)

I went down that route for the original implementation of RTi, but then decided that with a bit of juggling of the graphics I could make it "extend" nicely from side to side. Your content also seems to rely on small width columns so I guess in this case it's not a major issue. Personally I'd rather see more "across" a screen than have to scroll up/down.

Girlfriends choice of colour scheme! ;) And RoyalRidge is her company. I should move the pages onto one of my own domain names I guess. Just thought that royalridge.biz sounded more businesslike than www.NeverUnderestimateThePowerOfCheese.com

The colours seemed fine for the "brochureware" pages we had up but does make the Coranto pages a pain in the hole to read. I think I'll have to re-design the colour scheme ;)

Is it just the orange links that are a pain to read? I found that the black text on pink was OK to look at, it just seems the orange clashes on links.
