    nice looking site. a few comments to bear in mind though...

    there's no need for the frames on this site. you have added all of the
    notorious frame problems for no real benefit.

    well done for using proper html lists, but make sure you use css-styled
    <h1>, <h2> etc. headings as well.

    you are using css for some elements and font tags! loose the font tags
    (which are bloating your pages) - style with css. and move your styles to an
    external css which you can apply to all pages (makesupdates/changes
    quicker).

    use alt attributes for images - especially the contact info!

    nice work
    joe

    I like the overall layout/colours and its simplicity of use and
    navigation. I too am not totally convinced about the use of frames.

    Personally I would have used a scrolling layer to achieve the same effect.

    I like the look of it, but I too say lose the frames. There's no reason to
    be using them, and the scroll bar detracts from the appearance.

    Otherwise nice.

    Thanks for all your feedback.

    I am glad you like the general look nf feel for the site. The reason i have
    used frames is so the content in the right frame can change when different
    links are hit in the main frame. I.e, clicking on "Bosch" will bring up some
    info on the right.

    How do I change the contents of a scrolling layer from a link?

    Cheers

    i think you have designed a solution based on a frameset just because it's
    an available option - but it's not ideal. you may want to consider a
    different solution that avoids frames. eg. in no particular order:

    1/ open a link to a page with the extra info.
    2/ open a popup window with the extra info.
    3/ include the extra info permanently in the right hand column or in the
    copy.
    4/ you can use javascript to show/hide layers.

    I don't like the frames, but the site looks pretty good. Your copy (text) is
    a little amateurish:

    the home
    owner savings on your energy costs and help reduce harmful gas emissions onto
    the
    atmosphere which contribute towards Global Warming. The control systems on
    these
    boilers also help to provide increased comfort levels for both your heating
    and hot
    water systems. We can also offer a full range of standard efficiency boilers
    to suit your
    needs

    We specialise in the installation of "high efficiency condensing boilers",

    Something like that.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The text does not read as well as it could I know. Try telling my client
    that though ;)
