Some of the particular design objectives to be pursued
Neat, tidy and easy to read – a prime objective for almost
any web site should be that the pages are organised and easy to comprehend.
Consistent – pages should be stylistically consistent where
Correct punctuation and spelling – information should be
correct, as should the punctuation and spelling.
Logical in structure – the placement of pages in relation
to each other should be as intuitive to the user as is possible.
Printable – as far as is appropriate, pages should be printable,
able to stand alone without links.
Hypertextual – pages should appropriate “depth” via hypertext
Page currency and contact information – as appropriate, the
majority of pages should contain author e-mail contact information and
the date of last revision.
Relative rather than absolute addressing – in as far as is
possible, pages should contain relative rather than absolute element addressing
to allow portability.
Standard – pages should display on the widest possible range
of platforms and screen resolutions.
