NL plays an important role in determining the stickiness of your site. Think, what your visitors do as soon as they open the site? They all read the content of the site. So try to neat and easy navigation.

niD heLp fOR my thesis proposaL :(

I don't think we should care much about IE 6 and below if the web site we built it not meant for a big market share, say a blog or online portfolio. I think it would be a waste of potential and time to try to fix problems like IE's Alpha channel problem. That's just my opinion, maybe I'm just lazy. But those problems are making the results below my standard.

thank you for sharing your thoughts. im about to build a website for the first time and your posts really helps.

thanks again
