This means that if a website is monochromatic it uses only one colour, but it can use all the tints, tones and shades of that colour. Analogous is one which uses similar colours. Analogous colours are located next to each other on the colour wheel Complimentary colours are one which are opposite but visually work very well together. They are always found opposite each other on the colour Wheel Fonts: Titles and sub-headings should be larger than the text below them to show importance and to break the page and content up. Fonts should also be clearly coloured so they can be easily read. Fonts and Text: Finding the right font for a website is important visually and for useably. Fonts are divided into two categories serif and sans serif. Sans serif is one that does not have the small projecting features called "serifs" at the end of strokes. Serif is is a small line attached to the end of a stroke in a letter or symbol. Paragraphs are used in websites, same as they are in writing, to break up long bits of text. Each paragraph should have its own focus. For example: A paragraph welcoming you to the website A paragraph introducing the website and then another explaining what it is about. Backgrounds: Single colours should follow your colour scheme for consistency, and should make it easier to read the writing on your website. Patterns can also be used, but should not “distract” from the foreground and content of your website. Images are sometimes used, but finding the right image can be difficult and large images can make websites slower to load. Software: HTML Text Editors:
