    3. LEARN PHOTOSHOP.

    All web designers know how to use Photoshop. I was actually born with a Photoshop watermark on my upper left thigh. If you are aspiring for a web design career you are going to need to learn Photoshop, hell Ė even my Nan knows how to use Photoshop. So Google away for Photoshop tutorials, or browse your local library to spice up your Photoshop skills.

    The best piece of advice I can give you is to make up all of your web page designs in Photoshop first. Once you are entirely happy with the design start slicing and dicing your photoshop file for the images you will need, and coding the web page in XHTML and CSS. This saves stuffing around with markup code unnecessarily; itís much easier to make changes to layout and colours, etcetera, in Photoshop first.

    4. USE CSS INSTEAD OF TABLES FOR YOUR DESIGNS.

    If you already know a thing or two about web design you are probably sick to death of hearing about using CSS instead of tables for your layout. Well Iím going to give it a brief mention anyways for all those web design n00bies out there. Use CSS to control your layout, donít use HTML tables for your design. Tables add tons of unnecessary code, are time consuming and expensive to make changes to once the site is completed, and only affect the layout of the single page you are working on Ė as opposed to using a single CSS file that affects the layout of any page you want. Donít bust your knuckles by typing the same code over and over again.
