of a problem. What is it exactly that you're finding difficult?

If you want your header to include a logo, and/or some fancy text you would do well to create the whole thing as a graphic - that way the font you use will appear in anyone's browser exactly as you designed it. If you don't do that the font will not display if a visitor doesn't have it installed on his/her machine.

You can use various applications to design logos and headers - PaintShop Pro is popular, as is my personal favourite, Ulead PhotoImpact - a much underrated application in my opinion.

Post back if you have specific difficulties, and we'll see what we can do to help.

None of your images appear to loading for me by the way, and there are numerous typos in your text.

One other point - as an online trader you are required to conform to the terms of the Distance selling regulations, and among other things you must by law provide:-

1. The full name of your business and, if you are a sole trader, your own name.

2. Business contact details including an e-mail address.

3. An address for your business that shows your actual geographic location e.g. make it clear that you are based in the UK so that your customers know that UK laws apply.

4. Your VAT registration number (if you are registered) must be clearly stated anywhere that you are showing prices on your site.

5. Prices on your site must clearly show any VAT and delivery elements.

click here is a very simple banner!!! Created using MS Photodraw. Bear in mind that the image is oversized and quite large taking aprox. 7 seconds on 56kbps
