Underline your links to start with unless there is some distinct reason not too. Make your horizontal navigation a different color than the banner so it doesn't dissolve into the dark blue. You have a lot of CSS and not a lot of page, I don't want to look at the code too much, but there is entirely too much CSS. Try globalizing more. Instead of using <a href="">sdfsdf</a><br> for the vertical nav, use the capbilites of the <UL> tag in combination with CSS. Example:
One nasty comment to add: The blue reminds me of those damn smurfs!
In my eyes, that wasn't nasty, that was funny as hell... lol. I think that's the funniest comment I've seen about any of my websites...
As for the CSS, I'm still learning, and I'll get better with all that stuff... I still haven't even studied the globalization thing about CSS, and will probably be next on my list. A lot of my CSS is for all my psuedo pages, as they are all loaded into the page and becomes visible without redirecting anything, just pops up. If I did it all with seperate pages, I'd probably cut about 10-15 lines outta there, I think anyways.
As far as useability/accessability goes, those dropdown menus are are no-no - keyboard only users are unable to use them, and they generally speaking just plain aren't worth it in my opinion - there are much better navigation solutions out there.
Also, you might want to consider getting someone to design a template for you - actually, since you offer web design services, get a person who can do graphics and layouts for you, while you manage the scripting side of things. My honest opinion - when you offer web design services, it is important to not only offer something functional, but attractive. No offense, but from what I've seen, your sites aren't really that high on the visually appealing scale. Not neccesarily your fault - Some people have an eye for that sort of thing, and I think your business would benefit from having someone with that eye.
Just my opinion, hope it helps
I'm starting to like the drop downs less and less, but it adds just a little to my rather boring page, so...... Instead of pointing me in the direction of finding someone to do a graphical layout for me, why not give me a couple basics, or sites I can start looking at (besides just websites that already use graphical layouts) on what I could do to make it that way myself. I don't want to "sub-contract" any of my webdesign out. It would just raise prices and if I can do it myself, I can keep my prices low. Not that I'm making anything with it yet, but it will come. I'm trying my best to learn as quickly as I can, and I think I'm doing well. This last try as design was basically just thrown together to see if I was heading in the right direction as far as designing, and it seems to be so. So it won't be too long before that site looks stunning and more "likeable" by the masses.
I'm trying, and getting better . Gotta at least give me that, lol.
