Website Design and Maintenance

There are three things you need if you want a web site:

That's easier said than done. Although it is remarkably inexpensive to do the first two tasks, doing the third takes some time and effort, if you wish to get it right. Let BJK Research assist you in this, using today's best practices. These include: constructing browser-neutral websites that don't require users to have a certain browser; constructing XHTML compliant web sites, using Cascading Style Sheets to separate the content and formatting; avoiding bandwidth-heavy sites that put flashy animation in the way of the important information you want to convey.

At one time, many websites were content to mimic their print look online, almost as if they were holding up a hard copy to the computer screen. (That’s almost literally the case when you use PDFs.) However, a website is a different medium than print; and when you jump to a different medium, you need to change the way you present your information. This is the same reason a sports team will have one set of broadcasters for radio, while a separate set is doing the TV broadcast of the same game. What works well in one medium doesn’t always work in another.
