Very Cool greg, In the opinion of a graphics designer, I think you need a new banner, nothing fancy but I think atleast italic text and the loss of the simple outer glow would make it look nice. again, just my opinion, dont listen to me if you dont want to.
Apparently I listened to you-- even though I made the banners Thursday night and didn't read your post until just now (12:15am central Saturday AM)
I thought the same thing-- it had to have italics in there somewhere. I hope you like how I did it
