you need to go into your html and remove some stuff generated by the server when you built the page..also div tags causing some trouble..

if you look at the html.. the first 2 lines at the top of the page need to be removed..

the second one says>>text generated by server please remove<<...this and the whole line above...DELETE

go to the bottom of the html..DELETE the last 2 lines..
(everything after the </html> tag)

about 15 lines above the end of the document you will see 2 </div> tags..

they look like this..

  </div>
</div>


either....

delete the next 2 lines ....

starts..<div id="layer2"....
     ends...<div align="center">

or....

add 2 closing div tags after..
<div align="center"></div.</div>

not sure what you are wanting to do with position here..but either makes the links work:)

<div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; width:490px; height:115px; z-index:1; left: 328px; top: 107px;"><img src="title2.jpg" width="479" height="197"></div>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<div id="Layer2" style="position:absolute; width:719px; height:28px; z-index:2; left: 187px; top: 45px;">

Your divs overlap. You can't use a link if you can't get to it. Overlap the divs, and you can't get to what's UNDERNEATH.

Don't use divs -- and most especially, don't absolutely position them unless you are absolutely, positively, without a shadow of a doubt SURE what order and position they need to be in.

You've also got script errors. Looks like they're in the geocities scripts. I didn't go too far into those.

The scripts that begin/end the page are generated by geocities -- you CANNOT get rid of them.

And finally... just because you use Dreamweaver MX doesn't mean the page will actually work. ;-)

I've just checked out your site man and those pics make me so bloody jealous.  I wish our beaches on the North East coast of the UK looked so inviting, lol. You're right about black and white photography being the best.
