Re: RFP web design

This is the purest example of the "Peter Principle" I've ever come
across.  Clearly, you're out of your depth here.  Try buying some books
like "Web Sites That Suck".  You should read about bad design and good
design, then write about what you want the site to do.  Be aware that
most web developers don't bother reading specs--they just create a site
and tweak it from there.

Hire someone who has a clue.

Good luck.
