Looks good here (WinNT 4.0, IE 5.5). 
I've took a look at the HTML in DreamWeaver - it seems that you had hard
times with all that small adjusting images (one image, to be exact). Great
job, Bert! Are your skins ready to be committed?

A few suggestions:
	- I'd suggest to make the 'HowTos' a tab to show how the page look
like with more than one tab 
	- modify the stylesheet to display the current tab and the current
menu item (tell me if you need help with this one)

A minor corrections: 
	- originally, section names in menu were also white and bold. Black
on blue is not read well.
	- you don't have a space between 'by' and 'Steven'
	- the content font seems to me a little larger than it was
originally - it can be a matter of taste, but, IMO, Verdana fonts are not
read good when the size is more than 10pt.
	- you don't have the copyright sign (you know where)
	- some tables on the 'primer' page are too wide and cause a
horizontal scrolling to appear on my 1024 х 768 resolution display


P.S. Dream models site now looks much better. Nice pictures! ;)
I see three icons at the right side of the page caption, but they don't have
links. Is it Ok?
