I read about half way through the page and found the glaring spelling error
(easy to spot because its highlighted in red) which I'm sure John is referring
to, as well as many run-on sentences and words used incorrectly. In one such
example, the author uses "prinicpals" instead of "principles".

Speaking of the error in red above, what is the deal with the author having so
many red words??? Ouch.

Hi, kiddies...

I was hunting around for something and I came across a web page that
covers alot of usefull and common-sense information about web page
design, both from an approach and a mechanics standpoint.

OTOH, can anyone find the glaring spelling error. Be fast, I sent an
email to the page author, and no cheating with a spell checker.

My opinions are mine, and neither you nor my company can take credit for
"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good
poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few
reasonable words.", Goethe
"Say all you have to say in the fewest possible words, or your reader
will be sure to skip them; and in the plainest possible words or he will
certainly misunderstand them.", John Ruskin

and he will sit in a boat and smoke cigars all day."
