What makes a good Web site? While there may be as many opinions as there are Webmasters, good design principles do apply. Through examination of existing sites, review of recognized Web style guidelines, practical usability techniques, and focused discussion, participants come to their own conclusions about what these principles are. Some questions addressed include: how is writing for the Web different from writing for print publications? Why do you get lost in some Web sites? What is the role of CSS (cascading style sheets)? Where do we draw the line between glitzy and boring? Bring your questions, your opinions, and your common sense.

  *   Analyze and critique the basic design of 3 web sites
