  20. 20. TIPS<br />Visit other Freewebs websites for more information and more ideas on designing your website<br />Give your site a consistent look and feel throughout so that it comes across as a set.<br />It might be a good idea to have a “downloads” page. The maximum site is 1MB for downloads, so they could just be pictures, but keep it legal. <br />
  21. 21. WARNINGS<br />Don't make your site too decorative, as it is not always pleasing to the eye to use widgets excessively. But when you do add widgets use them for a good reason. <br />Make sure you do not put anything offensive or copyrighted on a freewebssite or else it will get removed. <br />
