Followrepparttar link below to view a sample web page using a table asrepparttar 134806 vertical divider line...

This page was created using Netscape Composer, andrepparttar 134807 steps taken were as follows:

1. Create a three-column table that is 600 pixels in width.

2. Sizes are as follows: Far left column size (18 % of table), middle column (1 % of table), far right column size (81 % of table).

3. Changedrepparttar 134808 color ofrepparttar 134809 middle column to match my text links (navy blue).

4. Insertedrepparttar 134810 number "0" intorepparttar 134811 divider column and maderepparttar 134812 number "0"repparttar 134813 same color asrepparttar 134814 column (navy blue). The reason I did this is because Netscape Composer web pages will not show a table or column of a table unless it has text within it. Don't know why, but it's so. I insertrepparttar 134815 number "0" so thatrepparttar 134816 divider column will show, butrepparttar 134817 visitor does not see this number because I've made itrepparttar 134818 same color asrepparttar 134819 column - it's hidden.

Take these four steps in Netscape Composer to create a vertical divider line that's neat and easily viewed by your visitors.

You can get very creative with tables!

Just because you are offering something for free (no money), it doesn't mean that you can't ask for something in return - like their email address. This is how some very successful ezines build their lists. They offer something that is valuable for FREE, but insist thatrepparttar visitor joins their opt-in list. This really is a win - win situation forrepparttar 134805 visitor, because they can unsubscribe two minutes later (if they really want to), but by staying onrepparttar 134806 list they will likely be exposed to more information that is of interest to them. The theory is that if they are interested inrepparttar 134807 FREE site information, they will absolutely loverepparttar 134808 current material inrepparttar 134809 ezine.

4) Internal Banner Exchanger.

This tool was an afterthought that has paid huge dividends. We all know that Banners and Banner Exchangers are quickly losing their effectiveness, yet a large part ofrepparttar 134810 advertising onrepparttar 134811 Internet still revolves around them. So we thought 'why not use them in a way that keepsrepparttar 134812 traffic withinrepparttar 134813 site, but allows us to test various banners' If we discover that one particular banner design or word arrangement is working especially well, then perhaps some funds can be devoted to using it on outside sites.

The banners also reinforcedrepparttar 134814 image ofrepparttar 134815 pages that they were aimed at, without losing one single click through.

There are of course many other considerations for designing your main page. These are justrepparttar 134816 ones that were most pertinent to us.

To summarize; make sure that you have a very appealing and professional look to your page that is consistent throughoutrepparttar 134817 site, use high impact, value oriented words in your copy, reducerepparttar 134818 number of outgoing links and increase repparttar 134819 number of internal site links. And most important of all... create a work of art that you are proud of, but not afraid to improve upon (change)
