In a thread I answered questions of a Coffeecup user how to convert a Powerpoint Presentation to Flash using Open Office, so the PP can be easily integrated into a website. But I found a much more interesting tool, a printer driver that converts ANYTHING that can be printed into a Flash file here:

And it's free! It works just like the many print to PDF softwares that you can find on the web, and even a little bit better: it can make a HTML page for you too...

Browser window dimensions

Firefox addons.
Lots of useful addons available through Firefox, and the one which has to be my favourite is the Web Developers toolbar. If you check out the RESIZE option (see my attached screenshot) you can opt to have the window dimensions on view in the title bar. It helps to see what space is taken up by the various areas of the average browser and what space remains for the actual web page viewing.

AIGA
formerly the American Institute of Graphic Arts
now known as the Professional Association for Design

Some useful professional resources many of which can also be applied to web design. I have chosen just one article out of the many available on the site.

AIGA, the professional association for design, is the oldest and largest membership association for professionals engaged in the discipline, practice and culture of designing.
