Very nice!

One small thing about your posting...

You have two images that are stuck side-to-side. These act like one big image. Some people with small monitors will have trouble looking at these. It is better to leave space between the images or to put them on separate lines. That way they act like two separate images and will wrap better on small screens.

Instead of this (stuck together, no space):

Code: Select all

[img]filename[/img][img]filename[/img]
Use this (space between):

Code: Select all

[img]filename[/img]  [img]filename[/img]
Or this (separate lines):

Code: Select all

[img]filename[/img]
[img]filename[/img]
I hope this helps!
