    Hey all,

    I've been trying to pull all the loose ends together on my latest redesign here: http://toddlambert.com

    I've got the look/feel in place mostly, as well as all my code. Everything looks pretty much the same across IE 6, IE 7, FF and Safari.

    Still have to re-do my portfolio section, and finish filling out the links, and some other bare spots.

    However, I think it's getting close and would love to have some feedback. I worked hard on getting this to maximize space even when viewed from both 8x6 and 1024x768+ - The site is built with a semi-fluid layout.

    Let me know what you think?

    Thanks!

    I'm not so sure the choice to have a background image in the navigation with the links above it is a good SEO decision, but I could be wrong. When I kill the stylesheets the navigation doesn't show up until the middle of the page.

    Also, do you think that "contact box" can be moved down to make one column? Looks a little odd as it stands now.

    Lastly, I wouldn't hide comments by default. I would at least show a couple (ala Digg).

    Overall, looking good!

    Hey, thanks for looking.

    Actually the SEO setup should be pretty optimal - as most sites are using "skip to content" type stuff, where in my markup, the h1, h2 and content come very first - then the nav and all the sidebars and what not come below. This should mean that search engines get to the content quickly and easily.

    Not sure what you mean about the contact box? There should be three boxes on the far right, if you're browsing at larger window size. If not, the three boxes should then be positioned at the bottom below the music,photos,links boxes.

    Are you seeing something different?

    I'll have to think about the comments showing.. comments on my site are not really a main attraction. I usually think comments are a distraction when reading - and if you want to comment, then showing them seems more beneficial. I dont know though, like I said, I'll have to think about it some more.

    Thanks for the look and comments, much appreciated!
