Believe it or not, I can do that. :) I've been to plenty of sites,
though, where I *should* be in the target audience but can't use it for
one reason or another.

Of course not. I'd have no expectation of being able to read their
content. I *do* have that expectation on English language sites.

"Good design" is in the eye of the beholder. Usability and accessibility
are a bit more straight forward, but you certainly can't have them
without good design.

There is more to design than just the looks, but it seems most web
designers don't consider that.

I don't want them to have to fight with the design to get to the content. :)
