Frames in Moderation
Frames can be a great addition to your site. Like all Web features, however, be sure you don't overuse them!

If you want to create a navigational structure that will always be visible, such as a table of contents, frames are the way to go.

But frames aren't for every use. For example, if you are looking to display information in columns or rows, then tables are the better match.



Keep Learning
Creating Web pages is a continual learning process. Getting up a first version of your site is just the beginning! The technology and tools are constantly evolving and our understanding of how people use the online medium is changing. To create good Web sites you can't just rest on your laurels.

  • Look at other sites. If you want to be a great novelist you read great novels. If you want to be a great screenwriter you watch great movies. By the same token, if you want to design a great Web site you need to look at other Web sites. Project Cool's Sightings is a good place to see examples of great sites. As you look at sites, notice what does and doesn't seems to work. You can even get the Sightings delivered to you once a week via e-mail.
  • View the source. When you see something you like, use your view source function in your browser to see how the effect was done. It's amazing what you can learn by looking behind the scenes.
  • Read and study. Learn all you can about both design and technology.
