Welcome to the forums! Nice to see someone else from New Zealand here
- The navigation looks cool, although as a general rule it's a bad thing to have to mouse over every link to see where it goes.
- I'm not an expert in fireworks, but you should just be able to set the canvas colour to stop it having a blue image (you'd then have to remove any colouring you've set in the text boxes). If you already have done that, don't worry but see next point*]You should avoid having the whole page as a series of images. The bits where you have text should be plain html (when you slice it in fireworks, choose 'html slice'). Unfortunately, you'll have to export using tables if you want an easy way of editing the text in a text editor. If you know css, then do select the option of exporting with it and position your text manually.
- Don't have the links open in a new window - users can do that manually if they want a new window open. Instead, have a small, common navigation bar/image on every page.
I hope that wasn't too much!
I've moved the thread to the web design/internet forum - if you can't see the forum while you're on the main page, you can click the two red arrows that point down to expand the 'general discussions' group of forums. Clicking it again will minimise it.
I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.
