    I must say you’ve created a very appealing site, but you need to keep a sharp eye out for typos and grammatical errors as I noticed a few at a very quick glance on your ‘Website ??’ page:

    • You have Who IS your competitors, but I believe it should be Who ARE your competitors.
    • The second ‘already’ is spelled ‘alredy’.
    • You used a zed in ‘specialised’, ‘utilising’, etc. In Australia, at least in editing circles, the ‘s’ is usually preferred.

    When I’m working on website content reviews for clients on websites that other designers have created, I always tell my clients that while typos aren’t generally a matter of life and death, they can kill a sale.

    Anyway, I hope these quick notes help.

    By the way?

    Would you say that the BIG percentage loading be changed to a more reasonable size?
    IMHO, yes, make the numbers a bit smaller. My initial reaction was “WOW! that’s HUGE! I really liked the writing quotes thing though.

    Often we are “too close” to our sites, and we just don’t see things as they really are, only as we meant them to be. I make a habit of reading basically everything I have typed on my sites about a week after I put it there…….I’ve picked up quite a few typos that way.

    I think I will have to come up with something smaller. Thanks

    No worries. As Monk says (about his skills of detection, not my editing prowess, smile), ‘It’s a blessing and a curse’.

    Great Idea, I read the thread then viewed your site. The flash banner loaded straight away and there where the quotes.

    Good work
