I was reading a great post over at Usability Post about the top usability mistakes of websites. I got thinking about higher education websites and if we’re guilty of breaking any of the top 7 rules. Of course no website is perfect and probably *every* higher ed website breaks at least one of the rules.
To tell you the truth, this is really a rant about why we should still be underlining all content links. If links *can’t* be underlined for some weird reason, the contrast should be *dramatic* between the color of the link and the color the non-linked text. Dramatic. I’m not sure why content links *couldn’t* be underlined, but I’m sure there is an exception out there (maybe your Web Style Guide says don’t underline? Even then, I think I’d defy the style guide).
