Chapter 4. Planning and Organizing FrontPage-Based Web Sites

Defining Your Site’s Style129


Whatever your site’s size and purpose, proper advance planning will produce a better appearance, more organized content, faster construction, and easier ongoing maintenance. More importantly, a well-planned site will attract more visitors, better meet the site’s original goals, and be cheaper to run.

This chapter addresses the core aspects of planning and producing a Web site. These aspects are closely interrelated: You can’t plan without understanding the work to be done, and without a sound plan you can’t properly do the work. That’s why learning to organize and produce Web sites is an iterative process that considers increasing levels of detail.

Most of all, keep in mind that design of any kind—Web, print, or other—is a human process requiring human judgment to obtain human objectives. No piece of software—not even Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003—can design your site or judge it ready for public consumption. Beauty is a human concept, and not a mechanical one.
