Will you take a look at my first attempt at building my Home Page (see attachment), and let me know what you think about the layout, etc.

I used Notepad++ with this, including Microsoft Paint to edit the container image.

What could be improved? What do you think of the colour scheme?

Thanks.

(I've scanned the file for viruses and it is clear.)

the red text in the header gets washed out pretty quickly by the busy image. you can read it but it's kind of annoying

also, as a general design rule of thumb, even if you're talking about egypt, you should never use papyrus (the font) for anything......ever....at all

I might change the colour/color of that red text, but I've tried just about every other colour/color. I don't want to use black though.

What's wrong with Papyrus font?

you could use the red text, if it wasn't directly in front of that busy image, or if it was on top of something else that's over the image that doesn't clash.

basically you shouldn't have text directly over a busy patern like that, no matter what color. it's distracting

papyrus is basically the second most hated typeface on the internet (after comic sans)

that's considerably better, though, it can still get a little difficult to read the second line of text because of the backround...it's easier than the first try though
