Businesses have now found that it can be quite simple to set up a page on the World Wide Web - with links to other pages and sites - for an instant corporate Web presence. For an organization that needs to establish a Web presence to reflect product and corporate information, the task becomes much more involved. The focus of this book is on developing a Web site, from preliminary design, budgeting and scheduling, to development procedures, project management, and the design of the organizational framework of a Web site. It provides techniques and supporting examples that can be applied to any large-scale Web site in any organization. Within this framework of user interface design principles, the book deals with the new critical issues of Web page development, including setting up the site to accept commercial transactions (digital cash), controlling access to users and other security related issues, supporting chat and human interaction, advanced layout and design techniques.
