XHTML for Future-proofing your Web Site

Writing XHTML starts with the same basics as used to create ordinary HTML pages. These are:

  • Know your visitor and what these visitors want to do
  • Design the structure of the site first
  • Apply the skills of design, writing, technical know-how and sales to the project, even if this is a one-person project
  • Chunk individual information into ideas, chunk data into meaning (Constructivist Approach)
  • Show relationships of information, and link related information
  • Keep the design simple and consistent
  • Design each page with care
  • Keep the focus of the design “Visitor-Centered”, rather than designing for school district or organization administration
  • Focus more on visitor outcomes than upon visitor's experience of graphics and state-of-the-art technologies
