The link to your site doesn't work. Or is it just me? I could help you redesign the site. But I have to see the old site first.

Oh by the way, please tell me who your affiliates are so that I can create custom minibanners for the affiliates section.

tell me who your affiliates are so that I can create custom minibanners for the affiliates section. Since this is a new site, you get to pick new affiliates or abandon useless ones if you want.

Okay the reason why I as you what you use to edit is because there is a bug on this web site. It's minor, and it only happens when editing.

Even if an editor sets or "fixes" a cell width, typeing accross the cell will stretch it. It will not warp (It's supposed to) like it should. I've tried it in multiple applications. When you stretch a fixed cell, it will mess up the entire layout of the site.

So to fix this is, do not type past 55 characters. Use notepad to type your news update or whatever and use the enter key at every 55 or so characters, then paste it into Dreamweaver to avoid the bug.

I recommend using Dreamweaver to edit or an application like it that shows you what you are doing in real time. BTW, the font face and style is as follows: <font size="1" face="Verdana" style="font-size: 0.7em"> You have to use style="font-size: 0.7em to get the size for the center text. And you have to insert it manually, because editing applications won't let you imput the size without giving you a hard time.

Sounds confusing I know, but do you get what I'm saying?
btw site updated. The pages are linked and a few things added. Take a look and browse. http://elementled.com/82M/

You have a lot of broken links on your site. You know, sprays, logos. I need those so I can put them on your new site.

I think I've done enough. You can take it from here on. Here's all the files and stuff. I'll send you the photoshop files later.

Download the zip file here

Extract it and edit away...
