The previous article asked you to define a clear purpose for your web site. You need to consider that in your page design, too. You also need a clear idea of who you are targetting your pages for. Is your site of value to everyone on the nets, or are you really designing for a more limited group? Are you designing for those who are very web savvy, have fast connections, and have the latest equipment, or do you want to reach beginners, those with slow dial-up modems, and those with old equipment and software, too? Do you want to reach the visually impaired and the colorblind? Keep those considerations in the front of your mind as you design your pages. Don't shut out a major part of your target audience!
