An effective Web site is much more than a technological creation. As a developer, your job is to
shape the Web user's experience and present useful content in a way that is interesting,
aesthetically pleasing, and easy to digest.
To accomplish these goals, you should begin the development process by considering how you
will present your content to the world. The first section of this course discusses Web design
aspects prior to the site production process. These issues include page layout, multimedia
implementation, color, and graphic selections.
