skip’s five tips

from uwebdev (repost to work blog): 1. Spellcheck 2. Check for broken links 3. Tidy up (duplicates, orphans, malformed filenames) 4. Make a descriptive title 5. Don’t cut & paste from Word or other Office products (many of our authors use FrontPage; this is directed at them) follow-up on point five, which I was curious […]

wow, I haven’t been to MeFi in a long, long time…
