    Feedback please

    I would open the ad size pdf in a new window (also telling user it will open in new window) otherwise that will most likely be a close and gone forever.

    Logo - Thoughts Please

    Text Images Update

    You are better off creating a background image so you can add in proper browser text on top of them, this way you will get things ranked for the keywords rather than alt text, obviously somethings will be ok as an image.

    Question for people

    It's all a fine balance. You should look at it long term, if you can strike up a balance with her over this and future work then great.
