    Lightbulb CSS For Large Portal-Style Site

    I'm creating the site www.skithesky.com. While all that is currently on the site is just info, I need to have the full version running by 06-01-02.

    *frantic!

    I'm wondering if anyone has examples of what they implemented for a large multimedia and travel information or similar size site.

    What are good font choices? How should I setup the style sheets so updating the look can be kept to a minimum?

    A proposed design is available at:
    http://www.skithesky.com/sitepoint

    Any tips, advice or examples appreciated...

    Well, keep in mind that you really won't be updating the CSS that often. In fact, barring one or two items, I don't change the CSS on any of my sites unless I'm doing a redesign.

    Having said that, this is the default stylesheet I use for most of my sites:

    <style type="text/css">
    <!--

    body { margin: 0px; background: #ffffff url(../images/bg_mainpage.gif); }

    p, div, td {font-family: verdana; font-size: 9pt; color: #000000; }

    h3, h4 { margin: 0px; }

    /* link colors */
    a:link { font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; color: #2b4d8a; }
    a:hover { font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; color: #000000; }
    a:visited { font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; color: #2b4d8a; }
    a:visited:hover { font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; color: #000000; }

    -->
    </style>

    Font Choices

    Thanks Creole....

    Does anyone have choice fonts for small blurbs of text that frequently appear on the home page of a portal site. I've been using arial and verdana heavily.

    How about for larger blocks of text such as full articles? Should I stick with a sans-serif font as well just to keep things consistent or use a serif font for readability.

    I know most of these depend on your layout and desired look, but I'd like to know what works for you.
