Chapter 06. Phase 4: Build and Integrate > Establishing Guidelines

Establishing Guidelines

Establishing clear guidelines for HTML production during the initiation of a web redesign project helps to answer questions and avoid costly backtracking. The Client Spec Sheet can help set parameters for audience capabilities and technical standards for the site. This is a worksheet or a checklist. Either way, it is long and detailed and technical. When questioned about technical parameters, the client will usually say, “I don't know. You're the expert. You tell me.” Or the client may request CSS and XML simply because they are catch phrases embedded in his thinking. There might be no valid reason for the use of these technologies, or either might work. Pros will have to be weighed against cons to determine the best solution. You will usually need to make this call, though some discussion is likely necessary.
