Firstly, some web resources that were mentioned in my class and that could be useful to webmasters, web production staff or bloggers:
- Image*After – a free image library, with no need to register. I usually use Morguefile myself, but this seems a good alternative.
- iStockphoto – a cheap image library working on a credits system. Owned by Getty, I believe.
- AccessColor – checks the legibility of text on any given web page. Seems that this here blog is just about legible.
- Browsercam – test your site on any browser and operating system. It's a paid-for service, but a free 24-hour trial is available.
- W3C Markup Validation Service – lets you see how rubbish your (and everyone else's) html actually is.
- Web Page Analyzer – calculates the size of any given web page and the download time based on various download speeds.
- Zen Garden – a smart example of what can be achieved through CSS. Although not by me.
- EasyRGB – lets you do lots of things with colo(u)r, including finding complementary colours and working out colour themes.
If none of the above is of interest, perhaps the following punctuation-themed Peanuts will appeal (and I know we had a subbing-themed Dilbert last week, but it's just a coincidence):
