Can you suggest a way to fix what you don't like? I will be the first
to admit that I don't design web pages everyday -- rather, I just look
at 'em. But the images that jh is sending don't strike me as bad.
Perhaps you can point us to an example of a web page or site that fits

Perhaps you're looking at the first image he sent? In the latter images
the button-like colors and border have been changed, and to my eye, that
is used to seeing a button as gray and 3d looking, these aren't buttons.
If you are looking at the later images, what do you suggest?

I'm not sure what you're saying. Are you saying that the logo is
partially cut off at the top? The amount of it that is cut off is
minimal at worst. Why must it be *completely* shown?

What would look better? Should he put another image on the right, with
filler in between? Should he center the image?
Hey, I don't want to start a feud, nor do I want to step over any
boundaries, but may I suggest that when commenting on someone else's
work, that rather than mere criticism, perhaps we could also suggest
something different, and/or talk about parts that we like. Presenting
material for scrutiny isn't the easiest of tasks for most humans. (At
least this human, and his two closest friend! :-) )
