    Well, after a long time of trying to find out how to have a new website for cheap, I finally realized that my Mac has IWeb, a software that enables html illiterates like me to create one.
    So, after 3 days of getting acquainted with IWEb I ventured my self in the act of building.

    After about 3 months I have to say that I am happy for the fact that the traffic has almost tripled in respect to my previous website, which incorporated Flash which, has been explained to me, is not Google friendly.
    That was a good tip.
    Plus, the great thing is that now I can upgrade the site whenever I want without hiring my former webmaster.
    Next step will be creating a blog included in the site, since the one I have now is actually on Blogger, only linked to the site.

    Good job. I haven't updated my iWeb created site to the latest version of iWeb yet. Am looking forward to using iWeb's new tools. Thanks for your inspiring work.

    Looks good and no problem on XP+IE7.
    Wonderful photographs, a pleasure to see them again.

    In viewing your website using Firefox, your site does not show you at your best. There are no pictures viewable, the text is outlined with boxes and ovals and is generally not what you want representing you on the web.

    Cross platform viewing (viewing a Mac created site on a PC and vice versa) is always fraught with peril. I hope that my views of your site are strictly due to viewing this from work. When I go home tonight, I will re-check your web site and let you know what I see.

    Nice, easy to navigate. I do get some empty boxes with Explorer at work. I try at home on Safari.
    Very nice work - I especially like the kitchen utensils!

    Thank you for the responses so far.
    Joe, thank you for taking the time.
    The first time i viewed the site I had the same problem, lots of boxes, then the problem disappeared.
    What I have noticed is that a website built with IWeb is a little slow to load because it's bulky, so to speak.
    A site built with IWeb is not a perfect site, I realize that, I hope that Apple will improve the software overtime.

    Similar problem here w/Firefox and XP. The links at the top are all bunched together and overlapping. It works with IE7, but I despise that browser.

    Gorgeous, sensual images Domenico! I especially love your "Lingering Past" gallery. Now I need brother and sister images to go with my "Pine on Gravel Road". Of all the photographs I own that is my favorite!

    The site has a really nice feel to it but I'm getting some of those empty boxes too. I'm on a MAC and using Safari.

    Webpage looks fine on my Firefox/PC setup, and I'm glad I had the chance to look through them all.
