I need to update my website. This guide answered a multitude of questions I have not thought to ask.

It is thorough and easy to understand, with clear headings and bulleted points. The wording is not overly technical and is concise. I appreciated her guidelines for making a website accessible.

This guide will be my constant companion as I work through my website update.
