There are many great top 10 lists for developers and designers but there are some basic concepts that clients should be familiar with. Many clients will enter into a web design/development contract with no knowledge of what it takes to design and develop a website. So here is my top ten list of things every client should know.

Understanding the constraints of the Web as a medium

The web is a growing medium but it is important to understand that a website is not on a piece of paper, you cannot control how anyone sees it, and it is a constantly changing medium.  There are principles and rules that need to be followed.

A website designer always has two customers:

The site owner

- who is paying the bills, who wants something professional, state of the art, exciting, and attractive.

The visitors to the site (or site user)

- who just wants to find what they are looking for as fast as possible.

It’s a very tough balancing act so I will share the following with you to help educate you about these constraints and rules.

For many important reasons, including SEO and accessibility, it is always best to use W3C valid code and lean code when it comes to creating your menus.  This is something that we designers and developers have been learning to do with CSS and static html for some time now, but applying what you have learned to Joomla's dynamic menu’s can be a little tricky.
