We have just published part 1 of the article series "Behind the scenes of the CodeMages Community", titled "Building a maintainable web site" on the CodeMages Community web site. In this article CodeMage explains that building a web site is much more than creating something attractive and original. Creating a maintainable web site is more important than anything else and you only need to keep a few guidelines in mind to produce a maintainable web site.
In the first article of the series, CodeMage shows that the key to maintainability is to separate site layout/style and site content as much as possible. The benefits of doing so and the disadvantages of NOT doing so are discussed.
In the next few articles the guidelines and concepts outlined in this first article will be illustrated with actual examples from the web design process of the CodeMages Community web site itself.
If you would like to know more about building maintainable web sites then read the complete article in the "Web Design | Other | Behind the scenes" section of the CodeMages Community web site at:http://www.crystalcode.com/codemage/goto.php?url=Maintainability
