  • Other Tips
    Always think about the users
    Fast load, users do not want to wait. A standard web page should not more then 60KB. It should take less then 15 seconds.
    Study HTML. Coding some times faster then drawing.
    Use standard fonts.
    Listen to the feedback.
  • Other Tips
    Do Not make page to wide. Users do not want to use horizontal scrolling.
    Do Not put long paragraph in page. Use PDF to let user read it off line.
    Do not use blinking text.
