Wow, that must have taken some work. I like structure myself, as long as
it's not too rigid. I only wish there'd been more of it when I was first
learning to do front-end coding years ago.

I keep a simple web design reading list online for print designers & and
aspiring coders/web designers that come to some of the forums I
participate in. It's an easy way to point them toward the kinds of
things they'll need to know, but I really like your "levels" approach.

I've also developed a couple of checklists for things like launching
(static) web sites and migrating dynamic sites. The latter is revised
each time I (screw up and) learn something new about PHP/MySQL & other
back-end issues.
