A good web design package will allow:
- Tables to be created;
- The size of a group of cells or an individual cell to be adjusted;
- Rows and columns to be inserted or deleted;
- Text or other objects within cells to be automatically aligned;
- Cells to be filled with colours, patterns or graphics;
- Different line and border styles around cells
- Write clearly and be brief.
- Don’t overcrowd pages with large amounts of text and graphics.
- Don’t use a lot of graphics — this can make pages take a long time to load.
- Put the most important items at the top of a page — this will attract attention and make people want to look at the rest of the page.
- Use headings and lists to summarise topics so that readers can scan the contents of pages quickly.
- Use bold and italic text to attract attention rather than special effects such as animated or flashing text, which can be annoying.
- Try to make your site easy to navigate by using frames or putting a table of contents at the beginning of a section.
