WEBSITE DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
World Wide Web Page Design and Construction programs allow pages to be made to be displayed in the Web, via the Internet. Web pages are dynamic and fluid and interlinked. Web pages are part of a website, which is uploaded onto a server, which can be accessed by anybody when a domain name (website address) has been purchased. Web pages contain lots of multimedia items.
Example software: Macromedia Dreamweaver, Serif Page Plus, Microsoft Front Page, Web Fusion, Web Studio.

And you can't go wrong:
Use templates and master pages

Have clear headings and test layout
Avoid naff and brightly coloured backgrounds
Get others to comment on it and suggest improvements

Have a clear purpose for each page
Plan your site first
Keep file sizes small for fast loading
