Whether you've just decided to learn how to create a Web page or you've been designing pages for years, there is sure to be something new to learn - once you know where you are on the path, you know what you're ready to focus on next - from beginning HTML, advanced HTML, professional web designers and programmers, to XML.

We all know that a Web page is not a printout, but it's still very common for designers who started in print media to attempt to make their pages look and act like printouts. However, if you decide to move away from the print beginnings, that doesn't mean you should throw away all design principles - you just need to be less rigid in your interpretation of them.

The principles of Web Site Design are how you apply design elements to your page. These principles are some of the more accepted methods of design.

The Web is a wild and mostly non-regulated place, but you can build Web sites that have any content you would like, but are still rated age-appropriate and safe for children and corporations. Most people, when they start building Web pages, don't spend a lot of time thinking about the reasons why they use various techniques. Learn to be more scientific in your Web site designs.

Splash pages are a popular Web site design feature, but if you put up a splash page, you may get more than you bargained for - or less page views. Use CSS style elements to change the backgrounds of your Web pages and elements within them. Set up things like watermarks quickly and easily.

When you use browser safe colors on your Web site, you ensure that your page will look the same (color-wise) on the largest number of browsers. Creating accessible pages is easy if you have the tools to check your site. With Bobby, you can make sure that your pages are accessible to all.

I always felt a little lost as a web designer in terms of where I was headed. Essentially as you gain more experience, there are three ways to go. :D
