hey overall it looks nice

i'm having a problem with the type though.. the light Futura [?] u/c and l/c all tracked out for the information is a bitch to read and you've got two widows [a single word on the line by itself] .. and the leading is a little.. large.. you could always just close up the hard returns and that way you'd save some [vertical] space and the first paragraph wouldn't have to basically touch the blackletter F..

etc etc i'm a type geek, ignore me sorry..

thanks

err

the arrows look fine on my monitor.. there is enough colour difference between them and the bg...
