I'm currently building myself a new website, and as ofcourse it's for me I want to make it a bit special. As a result of some hair brain idea I've come up with this flashy automated interface powered by DHTML. Which looks all well and nice, but when I try to sleep at night Im haunted by ghostly echo's of design puritans whispering things like..
Now, in this day and age should I really worry that some version 4 user may not be able to view my site. I mean arent these users extinct by now? Surely the web must be a nightmare if they do.. Personally I forgot about the font tag a while back.
Or am I just being ignorant of the silent masses :confused:
Your only limited by imagination!!!
I have to remeber that I have to have one of the best website's in my field to get the clients to keep returning to the site. If you have something cool on your site that you charge for, someone else will put it on free.
So you must think about what you can offer people apart from the basic data, something that keeps them interested in YOUR site. If I just created a website that sells drums and didjes, then once people have shoppped from there whats the point of coming back?
I know there are a few people that leave a site when they see moving graphics, but I leave a site if I don't. I love to see interactive websites, and think that they are the way to go. I get bored with long pages, whereas with dhtml you can animate the content, so people only read what they are looking for.
