      Getting Started
    • Text
      • Background does not interrupt the text
      • Text is big enough to read, but not too big
      • The hierarchy of information is perfectly clear
      Links
      • Link colors coordinate with page colors
      • Links are underlined so they are instantly clear to the visitor  
      • Graphics Buttons are not big and dorky
      • Every graphic has an alt label
      • Every graphic link has a matching text link
      • Graphics and backgrounds use browser-safe colors
      • Animated graphics turn off by themselves  
      General Design
      • Good use of graphic elements (photos, subheads, pull quotes) to break up text
      • Every web page in the site looks like it belongs to the same site; there are repetitive elements that carry throughout the pages

      Tips and Tricks

      Getting Started

      Text crowding against the left edge
      Text that stretches all the way across the page
      Paragraphs of type in all caps, bold, and italic all at once
      Underlined text that is not a link
      Links
      Blue link borders around graphics
      Links that are not clear about where they will take you
      Links in body copy that distract readers and lead them off to remote, useless pages
      Text links that are not underlined so you don't know they are links
      Dead links (links that don't work anymore)

      Too many focal points on the page
      Navigation buttons as the only visual interest, especially when they're large
