    Now i have no real experience working with clients but in my opinion you did what most designers should do. You are being hired as a designer not an artist. Its our job to create work that makes sense....

    I really like the aesthetic.

    Will you do more in the series? You could have a different design for different departments.

    Cool idea but I'm not convinced that font will work in every situation. Can they remove Comic Sans from all government computers? That would be a nice start.

    I do find them a bit boring. I think the layout and graphics themselves are too simple. I think you can definitely try adding some more detail to the graphics and experiment a bit more with your layo...

    I always try to recommend what I think will work best for the client -- even when it means a lower fee for me. It sort of boils down to a matter of being professional and honest, which as far as I'm concerned,...

    I know how this is accomplished...

    <a href="http://blah.com/page2.html#section2"><a>

    on page2.html...

    <h2 id="section2"></h2>

    It works fine when I put the id on a header element, but if I try to put it on a div it doesn't work. Is this normal? I noticed it works in IE7, but not Firefox or Safari.

    You should be targeting a named anchor, not an id:

    <a href="http://blah.com/page2.html#section2"><a>

    on page2.html...

    <a name="section2"><a><h2 id="section2"></h2>

      seems a little weird to put a blank anchor tag doesn't it?

        Not to me it doesn't. ;-)

        You could wrap your anchor around the text of your heading:

        <h2 id="section2"><a name="section2">Foo<a></h2>

        But then you're probably going to have to add more CSS to stop the heading from looking like a link.

          Okay, I've been up all night finishing a web site and my brain is toast right now.

          This should work:

          <h2 id="section2" name="section2">Foo</h2>

            yea, it actually works with just the "id", the "name" isn't necessary. I was just wondering why it wasn't working on a div because it would make my heading a little more visible if the page jumped to the top of my div instead of the heading.

              Yeah, now that I've gotten a couple of hours of sleep it's clear what you were asking. I should know better than to post on the forums when I'm dead tired like that.

              Anyway, I created a test page and have no problem jumping to a div using an id in either FF or Safari. Maybe you're overlooking something?
