“What do people do on the Web? Most of them spend a lot of time looking for things. A Web site is like any other public place where people come to look, to learn, to search, or to experience. And as in any public place, visitors will succeed in what they came to do only if the site gives them a clear indication of: *where they are; *where they can go; *what they will find there. There are many ways to accomplish this, but one design strategy underlies every successful navigation system: it is a visual model of the hierarchy that’s inherent in the content. Another way of saying this: A good navigation system uses the site’s information structure as the basis for a visual hierarchy that guides the user experience.”
