My girl just finished college with a degree in Web design. I want to know what is the proper way of charging clients for her services. She doesn't want to rip of the clients and doesn't want to be short changed.

Albert,

It depends on how much a person with your daughter's experience will make as a
fulltime employee at where you live.

The hourly rate she could charge is the same as the annual salary (in thousand dollars)
she will make as a fulltime employee. If she'll make 40k a year, she should charge
$40/hour. If it's a couple of weeks of work, she should charge less ($25 - $30).

In general, service fees are determined by:

1) skills required for the work,
2) experience of the person who provides the service,
3) length of the work and
4) cost of living of where you live.

I appreciate the professional advice from everyone. My girl just got out of college (since December) and she gets nerves cause she doesn't know what to charge. She has a good knocklege of Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop, illustrator and maybe more. Can you check out her side and give me your professional opion on her work. Thankx www.cmsdesigns.net 
I am using IE 6.0 on Win XP Pro and http://www.cmsdesigns.net/webdesign.htm, http://www.cmsdesigns.net/graphic.htm, and http://www.cmsdesigns.net/interactive.html does not come out correctly.  The blue vertical bar is not flush with the left margin like on the other pages.  

plus the title of some of the pages is Carmen's javascript slide show or Untitled page.  Those need to be fixed as well.

The site is artistically appealing. There're room for improvement in HTML and page text.
