I would like to solicit your professional opinions on a
question that I have been wrestling with:

What is "good" when it comes to Web pages/documentation?

In other words, if you were to list some specific criteria
for judging the quality of Web pages/documentation, what
would some of those criteria be? Or what peeves you when
you use the Web?

Just to get you started, here are a few criteria of my
own: Good Web pages (1) are easy to navigate, (2) contain
timely and useful information, (3) contain mechanisms to
measure their effectiveness (i.e., tracking features).
What have I missed?

I understand that other sources are available for this, but
I want to get my information from all of you--the world's
practicing technical communicators--not from a book on how
to create whiz-bang web pages, or from a magazine whose
primary goal is to *sell* magazines).

Thanks for your input. I'd be happy to post a summary
if anyone else is interested in this topic.
