DESIGN DO'S AND DON'TS
overload your site with animated graphics, cutesy backgrounds and huge,
memory-gobbling photos. They'll make your pages look cluttered and take
an eternity to download. Use “thumbnail” (small) photos instead. If you
want to include a large picture, put it on a separate page with a link
such as “See full size” next to the thumbnail. Then users can decide if
they want sit through the download.
? Do stick with
simple, easy-to-read type. Co easy on the use of italics. Make sure
there's adequate contrast between your type color and your background.
