    OK, I get that - although with the way it is set out, surely Googlebot will
    see it. Display:none surely does not prevent google from following the
    links?

    I need to get a little more clarity on this...

    This is also a good suggestion. Thanks, I'll look into this

    OK, I (sort of) agree with you, and have started making changes accordingly.
    The logo will scroll with the rest of the page.

    On the other hand, I don't ever want the menu to scroll.... Show should I
    best acomplish this? Especially if you don't like the "position: absolute"
    bit...

    Suggestions?

    I validated a while ago. I'll do that again on all the pages.

    And the apostrophe is there (not uploaded yet, but will be soon

    Thanks

    Ok, I reexamined your links, and I see they are in the HTML, rather
    than in JavaScript as I initially thought. I don't know if Google will
    see text marked as "display: none" and may think you are spamming or
    attempting to cover up false keywords. Maybe someone else has the answer.

    Still doesn't allow the 10% or so who have JavaScript disabled to see it.

    Visitors with short browser windows may not be able to see the bottom
    of your menu if you position it absolute, if it doesn't scroll.
    There's really no need, as everyone is used to vertical scrolling.

    Why? People surfing he web are not like ants who lost the scent trail.
    They will remember the menu scrolled off the top of the page...
