> Hmm. Nice and simple.
Well, I'm not claiming it's the best design in the world, but simple is what
we are going for. However, the site is not done and we know there needs to
be a little more design to the site before it goes live.

That's odd - 800x600 seems to fit on my computer. Good note on the nav
though. I'll look into that.

Haha - well, it's not really what I was going for but what I was told to put
there. So it's pretty much a capitalism choice sadly enough.
> 3. Most of content gets lost below the fold. Make font smaller? Use Georgia?
Font is 11px/17px - I can try Georgia and see what that looks like but
wouldn't want to go any smaller than 11px for font size.

Any ideas of what would be better?

Good idea - however (for the ADS) the names of the ads are sold as TOP HOME,
TOP JOBS, TOP AUTOS - it's a branding name that Morris.com came up with.
Every paper that Morris owns (ourselves included) have to use those names.
> :) And I say this all with love,
Honestly - this is exactly what I was hoping to get. I need critiques, it's
what will make the site better.
They tell me the internet never sleeps ...
.... Evidently, that means I don't get to either.
