A few months ago, I wrote to this list to say that I am developing some
web pages for ISWORLD (http://www.isworld.org) on IT in Developing
Countries. Some of you were kind enough to give me some very useful
feedback - which has been incorporated into the pages.
One area in which I lack information is resources that e-publishers can
access (or techniques that they can/should use) with respect to
providing content on the web that is most readily accessible by people
in developing countries.
It seems to me that Bandwidth is one of the key problems, but perhaps
there are others as well? Does anyone know of a resource that has
pointers to "good practice" in web page design for the developing
I tried to search for this directly, but while there is lots of
information on web-design for the deaf, blind, etc., there is none for
the "bandwidth-disabled", if I may coin a phrase.
I will be very grateful for any information you can provide.
I expect to announce the launch of the pages in a couple of months or
so, but always welcome feedback, criticism, flames, anything that can
