The main Gleeds site is a very clean design, with easily readable text and clear navigation. I found browsing the site easy as it had a well thought out structure.
On the other hand the yellow text that is used throughout the site clashes at times with the other colours and makes text illegible.
The Gleeds TV facility adds an impressive amount of video content to the website. This, however, is badly organised as every page is named the same thing, which would cause problems in getting the site indexed by Google.
Gleeds TV doesn’t use flash video (à la YouTube) which is always a better idea ,as most web browsers can view this.
