Will Ryan, Let me ask you this...How many pages do
you come to and then decide to leave? If you're like
most of us ...you run into alot of pages that are not what
you thought they were....so you're in and out. That's one
go reason why they put banners at the top center. They want
to grab your attention as fast as possible. If it's a good banner
it will grab you and take you to their web site. Hope that helps.
these are just my thoughts.

Darryl
