It's veeeeeeeery wide! I have a huge monitor and can only view it without sidways scrolling at full size and at 1280x1024 resolution.

People using a resolution lower than that are really going to struggle. Looking at my web stats for all the sites I have hosted, it seems like the most common resolution being used is 1024x768.

The rather comic looking font used in the headings for the small boxes I don't reckon is appropriate for a serious site.. a graphic designer friend of mine (now well over 50 and very successful) says that if you use more than two fonts in any presentation, the design has failed!). For a serious site, he reckons to use just one font throughout; what do I know? He earns more than me :(

I dunno whether he's right or wrong, but it is a lot easier on the eye.

Well, that's my 2 cents...

Hi Ashaec,

Just to follow on from DrJon comments regarding the display size, here is a link for stats on browser display sizing:
