Default text and content

Been thinking a lot about just how important good text layout is in web design. Came across this site and this page in particular:
http://www.useit.com/alertbox/reading_pattern.html it may be total tosh but it really got me focused on how I will lay my text and content out.
Could be of use for others, hence the post
Have a good one
Peter

Nice one.
Jacob Nielsen is the Usability Guru above all, so I wouldn't call it tosh

Domedia:
Glad to hear it does make sense. Some pals of mine over here in Spain are trying to sell their properties without the use of Estate Agents ( Estate Agents over here are terrible) and have asked me to design some simple websites to included in their adds etc. Be my first real dip into commerce siteS and want to keep the sites simple and to the point, hence the importance of text layout for my designs. Think I will give this F-pattern layout a go. Will let you know how I get on.
Also my first real try out of css, which the more I study- the more I like. Got "teach yourself css in 24 hours" and the "css anthology" WHICH I WOULD RECOMMEND HIGHLY TO NOVICES SUCH AS MYSELF.
Thanks
Peter

Remember though that the article above should come as part of optimizing the website. There's probably so much more that is more important.
How you present the property, the sales copy, great images of the property etc.

I used to have a real estate license so I know what you mean.. half of them act like used car salesmen

hate them with a passion

why do they feel the need to charge by % instead of fixed

what are they doing different from one house to another

dont get me started with estate agents

I did one that blackmailed her into alowing the sale to procede. grrrr
