-Are my eyes deceiving me or do you have 8 DIVs that each use a different-named image (identical image, -different sequential numbering) to create that gradient banner-bar across the top horizontal part?? This is unnecessary... you could have ONE div that stretches 80, 90 or 100% across the available width of the user's monitor and use ONE image slice, tiling repeat-x. I am talking about one image that is one or two pixels wide, and maybe 60 pr 70-pixels tall... repeating. This would save alot of coding and reduce the http calls to the host (fewer images to load = faster-loading page, reduced bandwidth consumption, etc). Or, -almost as good, -simply retain the 8 DIVs as-is and use the same image in each. This, too, would save http requests as, -once cached, the same image used repeated is loaded from the user's browser (faster, uses less RAM, etc)
I'm sure that's not quite the case as a few images ARE vertical images, but the same image can be used over, repeatedly, for similar functions. hmm.
