Considering basic computer and Internet skills

Not that we want to state the obvious, but you need some computer skills if you are going to design Web sites.

  • Word processing: Whether you're using Microsoft Office or AppleWorks, the ability to prepare documents efficiently ensures that you can prepare contracts and proposals and keep track of the business side of things.

  • E‐mail/IM (instant messaging): Communicating with clients is important for your success. With e‐mail and instant messenger, staying in contact with clients has never been easier.

  • Browsers: Having some familiarity with and testing your site on the popular Web browsers (Internet Explorer, Safari, and Firefox) ensures that the site will work no matter how visitors are viewing it.

  • Windows/Macintosh platforms: Developing skills on both Macintosh and Windows computers broadens your range and eases testing of your Web pages on both platforms. Professional Web designers work to make their sites function under a wide range of conditions. Book III has more details about things you need to look for and how to deal with platform issues.
