your colours dnt look that good i dnt like them. if you want orange try this approch www.orange.net.au (they use swish for their flash animations)
also i would add in the css section a:hover so u can hover links cause they look more better.
Well if you want my personal opinion I think the old design is better (at least visually). That probably doesn't help you much but it might make you re-think your design ideas. Sorry if that came out rude. I wasn't trying to be.
