I've updated the front page with a new menu but I have no idea how to reposition (to where the grey bar is) or to make verdana the default font. Can anyone help? Also, if anyone has idea for content for the links, please let me know.

Thanks

James

If no one who knows what they're doing answers, it looks to me like the menu isn't enclosed between the tags to position it in the table, so it's defaulted to the top of the page.

There's no definition of the font in the style, so it will default to the browsers default font.

If you're really stuck I can probably work it out for you, but there are probably other people who do do it better in a fraction of the time.

I haven't done anything like this for years but you could try directly editing the code in the page. Add the bits in bold (without the bold formatting) where I have below. It seems to look ok to me

Can we have a link to messages as you can't get to them without going through the forums.
