In one word: lacking.

The page is generally blank, not counting the text itself. The image
files you're referencing do not exist on the server, and the markup is
all messy. Judging by the markup clutter, I'm assuming you've used
Microsoft Word to design the page. Your page ends up with 88 validation
errors, plus quite a bit of unnecessary markup, styles and comments:

Using Word for web design is a bad idea (for anything but planning the
content structure). I suggest you invest some time in using a software
package designed for just such a purpose. A good starting point is the
open source package NVU:

Most of them are missing in IE6 as well. Some additional text shows in
IE6, but is not "selectable".
<p class=MsoTitle3><span style='language:EN'>Sign Up Form</span></p>
...cannot be selected by click-drag in my IE6.

The "Newsletter" page asks for an email address, accepts it, and doesn't
test to see if it is valid. Example, it accepted: joe @ nowhere.com
with spaces.

How about a sample of one of the newsletters?

"Sign up for" .. something that's blank .. for a thousand dollars?

"Name the four worst HTML editors:"

4. Microsoft FrontPage
3. Microsoft Word
2. Microsoft Excel
1. Microsoft Publisher

oreferrelative="t" filled="f" fillcolor="white [7]" stroked="f"

<o:lock v:ext="edit" aspectratio="t"/>
</v:rect><![endif]--><![if !vml]><span style='position:absolute;z-index:26;

And the editor is? #1! This stuff was spewed from MS Publisher...

Yep. Did that.

I remember getting a copy of the then-new Publisher 97 and seeing "Makes
web pages" on the box. Whoohoo, I said. Made one page, saw how bad it
was, and trashed it. Later versions are worse.

Well you got the quoting part down, but the reply part seems a bit lacking!
