    hold marquee batman!
    the best veiwed commment....hmm...well...how bout you just lock the window at 800x600...that'll solve the resize issue....the secrets of success should maybe be scrollable. it's a pain to wait to read it...being a quick reader like myself i don't want to stick around to see it all....the "about" link doesn't seem to exist....thats all for now.
    cheers

    That is a good way to annoy a lot of people visiting the site.

    but how? it's a happy medium to keep everything the way it should be veiwed. it's just going to appear smaller to some users.

    1. Ok, first, I am not a big fun of websites that re-adjust their sizes; I'd like to re-adjust the size by myself if I have to. Besides, your site perfectly fits into the width 800. I don't see why you have to re-adjust the size.

    I agree; marquee is out-dated.

    3. Kind of slow when a page gets loaded for the first time, considering number of images and the amount of texts used. You might want to check. Maybe you can make some images smaller? Not the display size but file size? Maybe you can optimize the code?

    4. If you navigate through, you should notice that the navigation bar slides a little. Check html and make sure that HTML for the navigation bar is exactly the same in every page.

    We'd love to... Stop with the annoying little pop-up window upon right-click and we could!

    The overall design looks pretty cool, and it's easy on the eyes. The colors are consistent with Chinese food, somehow...

    And yes, I would ditch the resize. I've used this feature in the past and I gotta tell ya, people hate it. They feel like they're losing control...not good. I really don't think there's any reason to use it in this case if you really think about it.

    The Franchise page's info is off center.

    That would be cool if you had a nice footer to balance out the whole thing. It's like with a story, you have a strong header, strong body, and a strong close/footer. While this doesn't apply to all design, I think it would in this case. Even if the footer was simple and subtle (like a horizontal line with address/copyright info just below it), it would balance it out me thinks.

    Good luck.
