    The top 5 web design debates that people argue over the most. :D
    --------------

    The world that surrounds the topic of Web Design is home to many debates and opinions on best practices or generally how things should and shouldn?t be done.

    While many of these opinions are accepted and taken on board by everyone, there are some that end up being split into two opposing camps.

    One camp will provide an expert opinion for one side of the argument, while the other contradicts with an equally valid argument.

    Let?s take a look at the five most popular debates; the ones that often end up developing into digital riots with opinions flying like arrows across the vast no-man?s land known as the comments section.

    ''A site should be viewable in IE6''

    No, people who still use IE6 know fuckall about the internet and won't ''convert'' anyway.

    People who still worry about <h1> tags should be shot by the way.

    Actually I have seen that people that seem to know less about the internet convert higher. Try pushing a Coke vs. Pepsi CPA offer on BHW and the same campaign on Kittensdoingcutethings.com and which converts higher...

    let's say you're pushing registry cleaners, antiviruses, spyware removers and the like....

    do you really think offers like that are gonna convert better amongst non-ie users?

    @ mil0x ... I was going to ask the same thing.

    That and the battle over whether to use Helvetica or Arial
