contrasting colors - a dark text on a light background or
the other way around, so reading it is easy and doesn't make
people's eyes hurt.
In your page layout, use enough white space around blocks
of text, around graphics, and on the outer edges of the page.
This makes your page visually more balanced and more attractive.
Cell padding and cell spacing within a table are an easy way
to quickly create this white space.
Use a color scheme of maybe 3 or 4 coordinated colors for
your entire site. Using more and unmatching colors will make
your website look unprofessional.
Don't make your page too wide or too long. The width should
preferably stay within 760 pixels so not many people will
have to scroll horizontally to read your page. Make your pages
short, people also don't like having to scroll down on a page
with no end in sight.

more can be said about design and layout of web pages, but
we'll leave it at this for now. What's most important to remember,
can be summed up in five points. Your website should be:
(don't make pages or text blocks too long)
(most important stuff up at the top)
(easy to scan with the eye for relevant content)
(consistent menu buttons on all your pages)
(keep it clear, simple, and to-the-point)
luck & have fun designing your pages.
