    The words need to be in editable text format (they are pictures of words at
    the moment - gif or jpg!) The same with Triplebit - they will be much
    sharper and clearer then - If you had applied some filter to enhance the way
    they look there would be some point in them being in graphic form!!

  2. Harry has answered your question but please note that your layout has bad
    errors viewed in Firefox although it's OK in Internet Explorer. This is
    probably caused by incorrect code due to using Microsoft FrontPage. Use an
    HTML validator to correct it.

    To continue on from Johns advice using Frontpage as an html editor is a
    waste of time, Frontpage is designed to use its built in themes and uses
    its own propriotory coding, try adding in a theme instead of your nav
    bar or use another editor that produces standard html like Dreamweaver.

    Re your navbar it's just not made properly try google for photoshop
    tutorials buttons or nav bars

    Can someone please look at mt site www.triplebit.com and advise what can I
    do to make the navigation bar letters look mor nice (especially the word
    "Home" at the right side)?

    Thanks in advance for any reference.

    It's not absolutely necessary to set them as HTML text; it's quite
    common for menu bar buttons and text to be a graphic, for example so
    that rollover buttons will work.

    I don't think that the letters are particularly ugly or particularly
    attractive. If you are dissatisfied with them, you might try using a
    different font, a different antialiasing setting in the Text palette, or
    both.

    However, you are using Microsoft Front Page. While people like Front
    page because it is cheap and easy, you should be aware of the fact that
    you have chosen to use an inferior quality tool that is very, very
    infamous for writing crap HTML. You probably only look at your site
    using Microsoft Internet Explorer for Windows, so you do not know about
    the problems it has. Many people who do not use Internet Explorer 9which
    includes anyone who is concerned about computer security and does not
    want to be overrun with computer viruses) do not use Internet Explorer.
    Those people will not see your site the way you designed it, because of
    the flaws in Front page and the fact that it writes poor HTML.

    I strongly, strongly advise you to stop using Front Page.

  6. The problem is that your images are being resized by the HTML (Which
    gives terrible quality). Shown at their original sizes, they'd be just fine.

    Nicholas,

    Can you clarify? How does the html get resized, and how can you previt
    it? And how, if you create a gif at a certain number of pixels, use
    absolute positioning, how does the browser change those pixels?

    I'm confused, am also troubled by the lousy gif quality I get when I
    upload. If I use html only, everything looks great, except on netscape
    where the text doesn't appear at all! I'm guessing it's because I'm
    using the spacebar to separate the text to give it an inline look. I
    haven't been able to create an inline list, which is probably what I
    should do, no?

    I am using dreamweaver, is it as bad as frontpage? I'm writing a lot of
    my own code now, but have a looong way to go.

    Thanks,
    Roxy

  8. The HTML has tags like <img width=89 height=50> (Made up example), but
    this is not the size of your image. This will result in your images
    being stretched by the browser, which looks terrible. Either set the
    width and height to the correct size of the images, resize the images to
    fit using an image editor, or remove the width/height values, which will
    show the images at their original size.

    Cheers,
    Nicholas Sherlock
