    I like the setup, colors and navigation.
    Improvements that I see:
    1. title your pages - they are all untitled
    2. cut your length of each page down to the end of your site map - page is too long

    Cool Re: second site

    I have no great way to say it, so I guess I have to just be blunt: your spelling is atrocious!

    I would suggest COPY/PASTE everything into Word to let spell checker do its thing, and then re-pasting back onto your web pages....starting with your footer links. Sooo many errors....like "Marrage" "Miniture" and Power point" (the "P" in point should be capaitalized.....and "mer-maid" is not hyphenated.....stuff like that.

    Is this pretty much a clone of your first, and just another domain that is activated to create a different spin to pick up stragglers via Search?
    Do you really need to support 2 different Brands??
    Why didn't you simply redirect the domain to your original site (which is still being refined to proper construct standards, I hope) rather than dilute the relevancy and uniqueness?
    Such ill-defined duplication* to any degree diminishes the value, and is not likely to be differentiated by the SE's as anything but suspect.

    You do know that if sites have very similar content that they are both held "suspect" by the Search Engines, right? They put both off to the side of favor until they can determine if one or the other is fraudulent or plagiaristic in nature.....which was the bane of affiliate sites (until they figured out how to use php-platforms to weave in unique content to dynamically present from DB created pages).



    * Ill-defined due to BV's HTML/CSS hard formatting, which does not allow specific inner-coding of tags or relevancies.

    Before you shorten the pages my friend, you need to slide up all your images/shapes etc and shorten them, and your background if you used an image rather than coded it in. Then right click, page properties, title (name your pages) and shorten the dimensions. Start at around 800 in length and then adjust from there.

    For never having BUILT from scratch before, you are doing fine.. it comes one step at a time! Dont let the old pros scare you before youve even started up. Just do what i do and buck right back up to them.. :) Everyone started out someplace.. no one was born a guru in web construction..

    I know you dont wanna be a pest, but if you are really getting stuck you know how to find me! Vasili is right tho, be cautious of content on the same account. If you are running identical content, consider a second account so its not likely on the same server, and then also watch your descriptions. Before you jump to the third site, lets get these two tweaked, titled and in order, then your third will be a snap!

    Youre learning very quickly considering this is what .. the second week of website building?

    Frank..

    I just told you.. first shorten up those shapes and backgrounds by clicking on them and then using the lil dots, handles to push them up shorter. Then right click page properties and then you should be able to size the page there.

    The gradient on the page is to strong and hurts the eyes. Try going with something more enjoyable and soothing for the viewer.

    Frank,
    You've really come a long way. You should be very proud of yourself.

    When you get time, take all the product labels/names (under the pictures on the home page) and make them also link to the page - not just the pics.

    You have learned so much.

    You have to hilight the word, hold the mouse down and drag over it, then hit the link, then type it in.

    You can change this in a couple places - first, if you want all your links to be the same - go into page properties and select there the link colors. If you want a link to be different from what you check in the page properties - when you have it highlighted, you have the option of selecting a different style- you need to name the style and put in what you want for it - then select it for that link.
