Network: Web design: It's time to de-junk those Web pages
Don't faze your Web site-visitor with a clutter of useless information. Instead, draw up some easy-to-surf menus. Here's how
Monday 24 August 1998
Net-surfers rarely take the time to read an entire Web page. Instead, they scan across the screen for relevant information. Yet, human beings can process only so much information at a time. With cluttered Web pages, visitors must wade through dozens or hundreds of links in order to find that one path to the information they desire.
