It's post number 50 in that thread that mentions the two books. But the entire thread is a good introduction to good web layout.
OK, I'm finally going to get them, since I fully intend to have my own web design completed before my 75th birthday (or maybe the 80th), and I want to be able to include a line that says "Vetted and Approved by Chris_T".
Ah, yes, that lengthy thread touched on so many web design topics (and probably offended so many) that it needs an index. Thanks.
Both books are in your local library. Unlike 500+ page monsters, you can leaf through these in an evening, or before your 75th birthday, whichever comes first. I'm not a wagering type, but I'll bet you a lunch that light bulbs will come on after you are through. In particular, "Don't Make Me Think" is a classic.
Prior to using my "name" for approval, please have your accountant contact mine.
