This is my first site and am having some trouble. I created the site using dreamweaver, fireworks and photoshop. Site looks ok in firefox but looks bad in all other browsers. Help and comments greatly appreciated

Looks fine in Google Chrome (and it is making me hungry for MEAT) You might want to put a doctype in your pages, move some of the inline styles into an external stylesheet and tidy the code up a bit. Possibly think about using div tags where you have the tables. You've got a great design. Now time to look at getting it cross-browser.

looks nice but your pics are too bigt (filesize) adn some are the wrong format

your header could be around 100k as a jpeg try this http://pp.kpnet.fi/prescott/stuff/brb_header.jpg (you alsso need to make sure it's the correct size and not resize in in your code - this one is the right size btw)

your meat pictures should be exported/saved as jpegs again from the original files too

I would make all those changes if i knew what they meant. I am very new and have no clue about code. If you could elaborate i would greatly appreciate it.
Once again thank you for your time and comments.

I am very new and have no clue about code. If you want to make websites you need to fix this :)

This is a contradiction in terms. The truth is that even to make your website properly you need to understand some code. We can give you pointers but it takes a lot of effort, learning and research to build websites. If you want to leave it to people who know what they are doing then hire a web designer. There must be some local designers who would appreciate a juicy T-bone!

I have given you some pointers in my earlier post. Why not do some Google research around what it all means?

I would follow some basic tutorials, maybe even from dreamweaver.com
The way Frontpage generated the code for you is notorious unreliable.
Look into web standards, using semantical HTML and all styling done with CSS.
