Not to seem like a smarta$$ but thought perhaps an observation (unsolicited as it may be) about that clearance page - you have used full sized jpg's and restricted their display size on the page through html tags that specify their height and width. As a result it took a long time for that page to fully load (I'm on cable BTW). You might want to consider creating "true" thumbnails with a click through to the full sized image.

It's extra work and may be more trouble than it's worth but I notice that you did the same thing on the other pages on your site as well - would hate for you to lose business because people aren't patient enough to wait for the page to load. You won't get a visitor's perspective since those images will be resident in your computer's cache as they will for anyone that's already visited the site and doesn't clear their cache.

The average image file on your site is between 19,000-25,000 bytes and you should be able to reduce the thumbs to less than a third without losing much in the way of quality and you can still leave the full sized image in the background as a click through - in other words, display only when someone clicks on the image they want to see in more detail.

Not viewed at all like an wisea$$ and I appreciate the input.

I will look into it.

Feel free to comment in the future on anything at all as constructive criticisms are always appreciated.
