I'd have to agree with Rob. Hire a local web designer who is happy to teach you bits and pieces along the way. Your site is not badly marked up at all. Some interesting use of break tags (never seen one used here before:
Code:
<link href="/assets/style_sheets/styles1.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"><br>
) but on the whole it is good.

I think your layout has some issues though, like the majority of the nav being at the foot of the page. You have to scroll down a long way to use it on some pages.

I'd suggest a redesign by a local designer but sticking to the basic elements/look of your design. Let them know that you are comfortable with DW and you will update it yourself once they have finished.

hmm looks like you have two options.
1. Learn it yourself, thought here and online tutorials/books
2. Hav esomeone redesign soemthing for you which you can edit and use since you're hands on.

I think the choice might come down to the time you have available. If you;re a little slow now and have the time to learn, spend some time learn html, css and also some design. You're pages look good, but can look better

If you're busy and don't have so much time, have someone help you out.

That was cool getting rid of the <br> solved one of my nagging problems. Now today is a good day again. Thanks Corrosive

As far as the nav bar at the bottom. Relay inst even needed. The reason my index page is so long is key word placement for search engine. I doubt anyone ever reads anything past the product thumbs. I think people are mostly price shopping. The important thing is to get them there and make finding the price and the generators they need.

I could be wrong.
