I don't know how to word this politely, but take it in the way it is intended.
I know about glass and glazing, you know about the technicalities of computers, and punctuation.
You can get glazed and unglazed tiles, the glazed ones have a surface covering of glass that is formed during firing, the same as china and porcelain.
"The liquid glass coating is what creates the texture, design and color of a glazed tile and protects the body of the tile from staining."

Apart from that, I take your advice on the final tweaking about punctuation, which is obviously not my strongest point.

Many thanks

What FE means (and what you also point out....) is that glazed=glass: so one of the words is redundant. A case of too many words, not the wrong ones!

I don't doubt that you know about tiles, I certainly know the difference between a glazed one and an unglazed one, but that wasn't the point. What I said was "You can't have tiles with a glazed glass surface", and it's true, you can't.

The surface is either glazed, or it's glass, but not both. As IClaudio points out, you weren't using the wrong words, you just used one too many.

You did say 'Be as cruel as you like', so I mentioned it. Perhaps I didn't make myself crystal-clear.

Being a wee bit pedantic, I don't think what you are both saying is strictly true.
My point was to show that ceramic tiles are actually covered with glass that acts as a glaze.
So why not use all glass tiles ?
Glass and glazed are not necessarily synonymous.
A doughnut can be glazed with sugar.
A window can be glazed with acrylic sheet.

Been following this thread and your changes, and like the way it has changed so far.

However I do feel there are a couple of things to make it look a little more professional.

1. The main menu is a little out of place with the rest of the L&F now. I would make it a part of the header type style, with possibly a slight background / font colour change to highlight it's a menu.

2. The rounded boxes need to be a little more standardised, by that I mean, make sure the spacing is consistent, and that edges line up if they are close to lining up anyway.
