    Four Critical Web Design Rules - Try putting pages...


    (Page 5 of 5 )

    Try putting pages on your web host server as you build your site so you can test it as you go. For pages online, you can test the page weight to be sure you are on track.

    Ways to make pages lighter:

    Use linked style sheets

    Use DIVs instead of TABLEs where possible

    Use simple repeating backgrounds for effect

    Summary

    Visitors to your website should be able to find what they are looking for within about three clicks. Making a site easy to read with consistent page design, and easy to navigate will make it easy to find information. You will be on the way to building a readable, effective, functional and hopefully successful website if you follow these rules.
