Default 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 ..

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).

Here are some more for tutorials/reference:

http://www.htmlgoodies.com/

http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/

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 ), I've been checking out

http://www.webmasterworld.com/

a lot of information in the public forums.
