When designing a WinForms application, the most straightforward way to authenticate a user is using NTLM or Active Directory using WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent. Over the Internet, you can use the whole ASP.Net security setup with Membership.GetUser. The GenericPrincipal object works well when you deploy to a mixed web/WinForms environment. See new GenericIdentity.

Topic: Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

There is no need to manually control the rendering of your site to alter layout. There is an easy CSS based feature that can be used to format your entire site for whatever options you need.

In this article we will see how to make the same site render automatically for screen, print, and handheld. There are other media types that can be used, but these will be the most common for daily use.

Topic: Website Design

If you are editing the stylesheet in Visual Web Developer, and you access the font-family dropdown, Microsoft shows 3 common web-safe fonts and then every font in your system. 

This is dumb.  Most of us designers have many, many fonts that the average web browsing public has never heard of. 

Therefore, I present this list of Web Safe Fonts.  Use this list in the font-family  settings to achieve the effect you want, with maximum web compatibility.

Ok, no one really needs information on how to make the worst possible web site.  This article was written as a guide how not to do a web page for your business.  As a professional web designer I am well-versed in all the nerdy ways required to carve a web site out of solid stone.  What I offer here is a humorous attempt to get you thinking about the things a business needs to consider before creating or redesigning your web page.
