I like your use of this,
background: #fff url('images/background.gif');
background-position: bottom right;
I did that a while ago with different sites but it looks really good on yours.
My dog has his bio and his picture stays fixed while you scroll thru his bio.
Very neat, different! Even though I’m not into “girly” or pink, I like it and will download to play with. The stationary background and the transparent menu scrolling is extremely nifty…. and I’m especially impressed that it views identically in FF, Opera AND IE!
