BBC News
Not divided into sections (except UK and World); more documentary lead; full list of current stories at bottom of page

Stories treated more like features; navigation gives no feedback on where you are
LM Online
The Guardian Newspaper
CBS - Welcome Home
NBC TV's Home On The Web -
The Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition
Business Week
Political News from Wired News
casco bay weekly
The Washington Times-Front Page
Basically stories recycled onto the Web, even following newspaper format; limited use of pix (tho credited). Tools are non-existent; colour not used for sections. Ads isolated from copy. Stories lead into full text, author credit given, easy to pick out.
Boston Globe Online
The Nando Times
Content sections clear; sections have prominent title with colour code. Search very good; multiple frames for results and target frame for story. Stories clearly presented; top story in each section. Tools scattered. Photo gallery for access to stories.
Los Angeles Times Web Site
Uses drop down menus for all navigation, with links for related stories; terrible site map; typography fussy and sloppy; sections very confused - hard to see real content sections. Search offers confusing selection of options. Inconsistent use of colour.
Nav mixes content and tools, and changes from page to page, sometimes on the right; pages are busier than they need to be; news ticker is in a deep box, gives no context; background pattern not used to separate elements; generally works too hard.
The New York Times on the Web
Menu and page based site, requires lot of clicks; sells stories effectively but gives little sense of where you are; pages poorly branded; WebX forums not well customised; ads well separated; login works well; low text version; home page small works well
FOX News
Nav doesn't support rollovers, gives limited feedback on location; stories uncontextualised; limited info on HP; video is a separate section, tho well done; frames but proper URLs; Java news ticker is good (shows sections, not too fast). Good search tips.
