Let me start off by thanking everyone for their patience and help with me.
I did a rudimentary site for a relative's art show, and felt okay about it.
However, there are 2 issues I can't seem to get over.
Here's the site:
First problem: when you load up the splash page, there are animated .gifs that
load up. I don't know why, but they take an awful long time to load in many
cases. I know that the hosting service they are using is pretty good, and my
computer and connection are fast. Is there something I can tweak in the code to
make those load up faster, or is it just that way with animated gifs?
second: if you click through to the artists page, you'll notice that in
Firefox, the top of the artist menus are aligned well with the top left header
text. However in i.e. this isn't so. I know that there can tend to be problems
between i.e. and firefox, and I saw this before the site went live. I just
couldn't figure out what happened?
Anyway, it's my first site, so it needs work:).
Oh, and the artwork isn't up yet, as you can tell... so it looks horribly
minimalistic. They still have to take the photos. Thanks again!
