So was I!  And your advice is great and I'm finding that my skills in
writing and communicating are 'definitely' useful in this field.
However, this question sparked another question in my mind:  How is
reputation determined for any web or e-commerce-type program?
The reason I ask is that I'm currently at DePaul (in Chicago)
studying e-commerce - www.cs.depaul.edu - and I'm curious as to the
reputation in the 'real' world.  Also, I'm curiouse about other
people's experiences at other schools in similar programs?

As I learned in an HCI course last night, don't be afraid of contrast
when designing a web page.  So long as your fonts aren't
'ransom-notish' large headers can be a great thing!
