IM Creator’s XPS looks to be an interesting visual website design tool akin to Squarespace‘s visual editor. I have only used Squarespace on a handful of website and the biggest drawback is their monthly billing over buying the software outright. XPS seems to be more affordable for developers and has a great free option for students and non-corporate work. Personally I’m getting sick and tired of all this website building with code and long for the future when the tools will be more akin to InDesign than the movie Hackers.
CSS Guidelines: High-level advice and guidelines for writing sane, manageable, scalable CSS. Pretty great advice here for those constructing well documented collaborative stylesheets.
I guarantee my jpgs, gifs and pngs are smaller than yours. That’s because of ImageOptim. This utility is a mandatory step when I create websites. It runs, at the time of this writing, 9 separate image optimization tools on your images to reduce their sizes. Best of all it is totally lossless, only removes pieces of information you don’t use, and is Free!
