I recently stumbled across an interesting PDF while checking out 1099 Magazine's parent company, Aquent. It's a detailed salary/fee guide for web professionals.

They've broken it down into various types and levels of skill, along with typical salary ranges or fee structures one might expect at each rung of the ladder. Check it out here. (You'll need to enter an email address to take a peek)

One nice touch: it was designed to be read from the client's perspective. A prospective client can use this guide to get a rough handle on what this type of work is going to cost them. Web professionals can use it as a guide to structuring their fees based on their level of skill in each particular field, from serious backend work all the way up to Flash wizardry.

I'm curious: what do you think of the rates themselves? I've noticed that there still seems to be a lot of variance in what web professionals are charging for their services...
