I like a clean background (light colored or white) with plenty of space.
Small graphics that contribute to the page's content. Everyone has seen the
spinning globe, etc. and it doesn't do a thing except make you look like you
have the design skills of an 8 year old.
Don't FORCE music on me. If you have to, put a link, but don't assume that
I'm as crazy about "The Lichtensteiner Polka" done in MIDI as you are.
Don't use blink tags. If Regis ever gives me the million, I'm going to use
it to find out who invented the blink tag. Then I'm goin' huntin'.
