Be a Web Designer! Part 2
I hope that by this week, you've had a chance to learn a little html and decide what kind of Web site you want to build. The next step is planning what your Web site will look like. There are a lot of things to consider such as colors to use, where to put text and pictures, and how you want to set up the navigation. First, it's important to know what information will go on each page of your new Web site. For example, you might want to have a page just for links or a page for news. If so, you'll need to plan where text and pictures go on each page.
Now comes the fun part! My favorite part of designing a site is deciding what colors to use. You'll need to choose colors for the background, text, links, visited links and any other items you want to use on the page. Need a little color inspiration?
