I was surprised when the text actually resized in IE.

Looks real good! The only significant issue I saw was that the
"home/contact us/..." nav wrapped and overlapped the main container with a
single font-size increase.

I did not view all of your pages. All of thoese that I did view have
horizontal scrollbars; right-left scrolling is required to view these
pages. I think this is the result of the size and positioning of the
graphics at the top of the pages since none of the body text requires
scrolling.

I tested one page. Eureka!! A commercial page that validates with no
errors in either markup or CSS!!

Overall, the site is very well done.

- No background color specified for <body>.
- Font size is 80% of my preferred.
- The nav links at the upper right (top-links) wraps to the next line. (I
have a minimum font size set so I can read such text.) The result is black
text on dark green. Set the width in ems rather than px so it adjusts to
font size changes.
- Contact page: For a couple of the form labels, the colon (:) wrapped to
the next line. Just the colon. Either set the <td> to white-space:nowrap
or replace the space+colon with &nbsp;+colon .

Yes, those look fine now.

Other bits:
- The <h2> element has a text size the same as the main text. It should
really be larger, say around 1.1em or 1.2em.
- Also for <h2> add "clear:both " to the CSS ruleset. On the Fleet page the
"Reliabilit y" heading sits next to the image rather than starting below it
(unless that is what you want?).
- On the home page provide a link to the Fleet page on the "Fleet" heading.

- Font size is 80% of my preferred.
- Contact page: For a couple of the form labels, the colon (:) wrapped to
the next line. Just the colon. Either set the <td> to white-space:nowrap
or replace the space+colon with &nbsp;+colon .

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
