not exactly, i was reffering to a final product (kinda). in the end is would be like (for example):
Serebii Webmasters' guide to a successful website v1:
To make a successful site you should have all of your logos, js files, css files, and includes in marked folders at the top public level of your domain. These files should be .htaccess protected to keep others from stealing your code. They should also have generic names to keep others from knowing what templates you might have used, ex: dropdown_menus.css, logo.png/logo.jpg/logo.gif, header.html, footer.html.
Your URL's should be labeled well. ex:
Instead of page2.html use aboutus.html
Use .htaccess to keep your site organized. Have mod_rewrite send people who type in .htm or .phtml or .shtml get sent to the .html file. Use file access rights to deny people from seeing files on their browser in file viewing mode (so they can only see the file when you use it on your site).

(Sorry for double posting, i can't put the entire thing in one post on my phone)
Don't use more that one script (js, php, vbs, etc.) per page, it takes forever to load.
Put all of your formatting into ONE external css file (css files that came with something that you got (like a dropdown menu) somewhere else and put on your site are an exception). It makes everyone elses life easier.
ETC, ETC, ETC.
Basically the intent was to make ONE 'ultimate guidelines in building a site' thing. Everyone's opinion put into it ONE big guide on SPPf. Compile everyone's opinion into the ultimate guidelines to post. Sort of like what W3C does with web standards, but as something on a MUCH smaller scale, smaller audience, smaller value (it is for SPPf general purposes in this case, not for the world).
Are you getting what i'm saying now? Did this help?
