Be succinct: how to write for the Web (15 Mar 1997)
The three main guidelines for writing for the Web are:
1. Be succinct: write no more than 50% of the text you would have used in a hardcopy publication
2. Write for scannability: don't require users to read long continuous blocks of text
3. Use hypertext to split up long information into multiple pages
