Help producing my first web banner? - Adobe Illustrator Macintosh

Hi there, I have always designed for print in the past but a client wants me to produce a web banner. They say 'O it's just like designing for print'. Some how I reckon not, but am keen to have a go! These are the initial guesses I've had... Change my colour settings to web graphics defaults. Use pixels instead of mm for banner dimensions. Use web safe colours from the colour swatches. Work in RGB not CMYK. Save for web as a GIF. Please could anyone advise if I'm wrong, or on other stuff I'm missing? Many thanks Gill...

    Turn on Pixel Preview so you can correctly preview antialiasing on screen. Other than that, it sounds like you're ok.
