Steve, I no longer do website critiques. Why not create a poll and ask members what they think about the readability of your site. If the consensus if overwhelmingly positive, why bother changing anything?
For one thing, Dale, I highly respect your input when a site is put up for critique and I look forward to hearing from you when my final site goes up. That goes for Craig and many other regulars here.
As I said earlier, the site at MMDV.com is not the site that I will be putting up for review. I am rewriting my business plan and, I`ve fallen in love with a new tool for generating my web pages. (WYSIWYG Web Builder). I formerly used MS Word and lot`s of tables and saved as HTML. I had little control and had to edit in my own HTML code. Worse yet, the HTML generated by MS Word failed the W3C validation test miserably - hundreds of errors. I understand that this can cause a search engine `bot to give up early. (At least this has been my experience). WWB generates code that only has one easily corrected error. Maybe I like WWB so much because the UI is so similar to my favorite coding program - Visual Basic.
While readability was the topic of the OP, copywriting does go hand-in-hand with visual details. Sort of like the effect of audio on a video production. Viewers will be typically more tolerant of bad video than bad audio. It doesn`t matter how good the video is, if the sound is slightly out of synch, the perceived quality goes way down real fast.
So, Dale, I do hope that you will comment on my final site when it goes up in the next few weeks.
