Are you sure?
Sure you got that type of help here?
Opera - links (mostly) don't work, pages probably appear as intended
FireFox - links (mostly) don't work, pages probably appear as intended
IE - links work, pages appear rather odd, pics don't display
virtue is its own punishment

The middle picture looks like a painting on burlap...
Suggest you get some more browsers and check this carefully.
What did you use, Microsoft Publisher? That's probably the worst HTML
editor on the planet...

Not a single one of the links on the left even activate for me (Firefox
1.0.7), no finger...
The scrolly is really annoying (well, scrolls are in general to me) -
the text is too big, you can't even see one word at a time, mostly.
You've also not used the alt= attribute on *any* of your images. And
since everything but the scrolly is an image, someone using a screen
reader would get no more useful information than if they were looking at
a blank page.
By the source code, it'd have to be Microsoft, something other than
FrontPage - even *it* doesn't produce as much useless code. I'd suggest
getting a decent web page builder. FrontPage 2003 is OK (avoid any
lower versions like the plague), Dreamweaver's better. There are some
decent free ones too, though any names escape me at the moment.
It *looks* a good first effort - prettier page than my first attempts -
but there's still a lot of work to do. And I echo what the others say
about installing and testing on other browers.

I quite like Namo Webeditor, when on the rare occassions I use a
dedicated HTML editor. I'm not sure I'd purchase it again, however, if
I could go back in time.
