Webmaster resource / reference links
 
I don't know if this will work, but it seems like something worth trying - a thread where we add links to sites where we find useful information / references for webmasters..

We have many threads where links are being shared, but perhaps one thread, just for the purpose will make things easier :shrug: ..

I'll start:

1) Jakob Nielsen's Top 10 Design Mistakes of 2003:
http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20031222.html
- while you may not agree with some, and you certainly won't find they all apply to any site, there is some excellent information (all over his site).

:hatoff:

Here are some more for tutorials/reference:

Oh, re: a previous thread check out how Wired News ( http://www.wired.com/ ) handles text size. It's in the upper right corner - it appears they use alternate style sheets for different sizes.

Having just given up on what were the last usenet forums in which I participated (they were webmaster related, but .... you know usenet :rolleyes: ), I've been checking out

http://www.webmasterworld.com/

a lot of information in the public forums.
