    One mistake is having huge walls of text. Majority of people online will not sit there and read it all.

    True, but this is a double ended sword, Text is required for SEO and Page-Rank

    You can have text without having a wall of it. Formatting and spacing can make text more appealing to the eye, while still offering content.

    Browser incompatibility, mailto links and common templates are annoying.

    'Under Construction' pages are a total turn-off.

    rather then make the text like wall, better to put in in some section or part. make it sequel or more to make people curious about the next explanation about what you're talking about.

    I disagree with the comments about cross browser compatibility, in a commercial environment losing 15% of your audience is just about the biggest error you can make -

    Although this is just due to my work experience.

    I've worked in environments where they have spent 50,000 pounds on Sunday paper adverts and 15% (more at the time) would be visiting that site in ie6. If you got 10,000 hits thats 1,500 people who won't spend one second on your page as the design is all over the place. Which means you have essentially wasted 7,500.

    It's just wouldn't ever be acceptable in a big organisation.

    BTW. I'm hoping against hope that ie6 will die a horrible death soon.

    For me, the most common Web site mistake is not planning properly before building the site. Even great coders miss out on this one, and the site dies an inevitable death just because he/she forgot to think before leaping off the cliff.
