A good web site should be easy to navigate, realitivly simple in design, yet plesing to the eye. Garrish color schemes are a big turn off, along with pages drowned in huge graphic files, speed is important. I like text links more than icon links just because they take much less time to load, but if they load fast than they're great.
The exception to my simplicity rule is the Flash sites.. oh my gosh, some of them are just SO cool, lot's of fun to play with. Others though are just... blah.
When I write up my own pages I always type up the code myself. I think it's a lot more fun to do that way. I don't like the software... I'm sure there are good ones out there, but Frontpage.. ick... I just don't want to spend the money when I could do it in Notepad for free.
Cool subject, Sharon, I'd like to see what others think. And what about you?
