I noticed that in your background.jpg file you have incorporated the white background for the text content to sit, is there any reason for this? Would it be a better idea to create a separate DIV wrapped around the content boxes, at 760px wide with a white background, center it horizontally, and give it top and bottom margins, so that the height of it can expand if you make extensive changes to the text etc.?
Overall, very helpful tutorial :) helped me understand the box model a lot better!

<div class="section"> <img id="main_image" src="images/image.jpg" width="710" height="160" alt="my first image"> <div class="box_section"> </div> </div> The width and height attributes of the img tag are fairly self explanatory, but the alt attribute isn't. The alt attribute is what is shown when the image can't be displayed, and is what gets read aloud to screenreaders. Making sure you give all your images descriptive alt tags is important for accessibility, and will make your site of higher quality to search engines too. You'll notice we also gave the <img> tag an ID. This is so we can manipulate this particular image later with CSS.
That should be <img> :-) Otherwise, good tutorial.

Example is using the HTML 5 doc type so...
- Instead of using <div class="section"> and <div id="header"> use <section> and <header>.
Except in HTML 5 when you should use the <nav> and <menu> tags.
Use unordered lists (the li tag) for any navigation lists you have (like your primary navigation) because semantically, these are a list of links. As with everything else, you can alter the formatting using CSS.
For placing example images may I recommend placekitten.com or dummyimage.com.
