 1. Go for the freebies

 2. Don't use top-of-the-line Browser specific instructions

 3. Check out the opposition

 4. Keep those images down in size

 5. Repeat images

 6. Don't forget to provide alternatives to the images

 7. Careful with those videos

The HTML converters tend to be verbose and difficult to fix. So find out what you can do more easily in Word whatever, and use them. I have a separate article on this.

 9. Put bookmarks on your page

10. Schedule your production
