When I've attempted to "present" online docs, if it's available externally, I give the URL in my cover letter and/or resume. If it's internal, I simply bring a laptop to my interview and let them poke around. One other option, send the site on a cd or floppy.
> For my next question...now that I know it's possible to be employed as a web designer how would I put together a portfolio and what do I put in it? I've designed various graphics and web pages. What's the best way to present it? Hardcopy or online for instance?
