It is here.
Now a few asides...
I'd advise against using XHTML, but if you are going to use it, then
don't forget to specify the namespace on the html element. I'd also
avoid Transitional, it's intended purpose is as a stop gap measure for
bringing old documents upto date. When starting from scratch you
should go directly to Strict.
It also seems rather odd to hard code a claim that the XHTML isn't
XHTML but is HTML inside the document.
Keywords, in meta data, should be comma seperated (not that most
search engines pay much attention to them), and the number of keywords
you have looks like you are keyword spamming (which might harm your
Alt text should be an alternative to the image, not a description of
it. There's no need to mention that the flags are flags, what is
important is that they link to different language versions of the
site. Oh, the English flash looks like this:
what you have is half a Union Flag, and have whatever the flag of the
United States of America is officially called.
Its probably not a great idea to provide user's with a spash page and
force them to pick a language. Insead, you can use content negotiation
to send them to a sensible default (and include an option to switch
language on each page). http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/multi/ is a
useful resource on the subject.
