Web design

There are many sites that offer guidelines online. Examples include IBM (http://www-03.ibm.com/easy/page/558) and US government (http://www.usability.gov/pdfs/guidelines.html0 ).

One site that will test your website for accessibility, quality and privacy for free is: http://webxact.watchfire.com/
