Are most commercial websites designed by children? (31 Jul 2003)
You don't expect children to put their designs through wind-tunnel tests, or make sure they have readable dashboards and usable controls, meet safety laws, are economical to run and can be manufactured for an acceptable price. That's why you have the job done by professionals who understand the technology.
