    I'm really into typography, and I thought this type (lulz) of site would be appropriate for my industry... Some fonts are so beautiful when you look at large versions of them.

    I haven't put all of my content up yet - I'm just trying out the design.

    thanks. yep.... the home page is just a big image with hot spots lol.

    unfortunately, there's no other way to use interesting typography on a web site. i've looked into methods for embedding fonts, but nothing seems to work consistently.

    besides, I can't think if an easier, faster way to design a web page. I'm thinking about adding a 1px or 2px border with rounded corners, but I might skip it

    It also looks way too static. I for one couldn't even tell that type underneath each category were linkable. May want to try breaking up the page and doing onfocus events or something.
