Principles for Web Development

Courtesy of Jonathan Sanderson at The Daily Grind comes The BBC’s Fifteen Web Principles. As Jonathan says they're all pretty sound and forward-thinking, but if I had to pick a favourite it'd be this:
3. Do not attempt to do everything yourselves: link to other high-quality sites instead. Your users will thank you. Use other people’s content and tools to enhance your site, and vice versa.

I lost count of the number of clients I told that to, both in the early days and more recently too. "Not Invented Here" syndrome is alive and well.
