    I hate to do this, but I guess its the best way to discover how you are doing.
    I am constantly tweaking it, going back and forth from adding columns down the left and right hand side, although I like the clean whitespace look and subtle icons and colors.
    I still have some elements to work out and I know that it isn't quite valid xhtml yet,
    anyway the link:

    You might want to do something, so when someone who like me looks at it in 800x600 .. it doesn't get all out of whack :) But I like it

    I really like it. Super clean looks without being boring. Nice job. I viewed it in FireFox at 1024 res. in Windows and it looked great.

    Thanks I appreciate all the support, I want to be able to add a shadow to the top and bottom borders of the content, but not sure how to.

    very clean, i like it. it's interesting how you have all the stuff that would normally be in the sidebar below the content rather than alongside it.

    what do you mean, in the right hand section, the one that is slightly lower than the content section?
    Because on some browsers, when I have been testing, the sidebar arrives well below the content.

    NickToye,
    Looks G R E A T! One small issue. When viewing the page in Opera your navigation images at the top are overlapping the border of the header. Perhaps making the images transparent GIF's or PNG's would solve that. Or you could adjust padding to bring them down a little.

    Cheers...
    All this positive feedback is going to give me confidence for my interview next month.
    As for the Opera thing, I need to look at the Be Nice To Opera rules, because I don't really want to mess around with gifs and stuff, I would rather do it in CSS.

    The background repeats (left to right).

    NickToye,
    That's a really nice design, I like it and as mentioned before, it's clean - however, I'm experiencing the same problem as method (#)
    The layout breaks a bit in Firefox and IE6 - I'm on WinXP Pro 1152x864 if that helps, if you want me to send you a screenshot, let me know and I'll do one up for you in both browsers.

    I see what you mean, but CSS is supposed to be fluid.
    The shadow that I use is, a graphic that repeats down the page. That is why it breaks.
    Contract is supposed to be a play on words, I have seen it used on some of the major design players.

    Ok I fixed the border of the content, to a fixed border rather than using a graphic.
