The gmail UI would make a good study of preserving selections.

comment Does dark colour affect user's trust?
Why do you think it would affect a user's trust? (not saying it wouldn't just interested in why you think it might.). Also standard comment: This seems like a very clear case for multivariate testing- it's hard to know how your customers will react to your shop in the context of that community. (It looks fine to me)

comment predict behavior based on emotional response
Predicting a user's behaviour is at the heart of nearly all (non-physical) design. It might help if you were clearer about your aims. "gathers participants emotional reaction" at what scale? You could measure pupil dilations or ask them a month later. Both would provide valid but likely different outcomes... Being clearer about what you aim to discover might let us give better answers.

comment Hyphens or en dashes—which are more readable when used in number ranges (for North American web users)?
That's fine if you don't need content to be entered by (normal) people. Try asking your average copywriter where the en-dash is on their keyboard... (Personally I enjoy the type-nerdery of the different types of dashes but ordinary people will look at you like you're crazy. Probably rightly.)

Lots of non-programming writing & editing is done in monospace. See screenwriting formats here: bbc.co.uk/writersroom/send-a-script/formatting-your-script

Do browsers/print dialogues even render print pages responsively?

comment What is UX strategy?
It is, of course, perfectly possible to react to user needs or site objectives tactically not strategically... (So I'm not clear that this helps show what UX strategy so much as where it should happen.)

comment Print mode, will users always print at 8.5 x 11?
It's not just Europe - it's the whole world apart from USA & Canada that use the International Standard paper sizes. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A4_paper#A_series (Why on earth USA resists this elegant and far more usable system is probably another question... ;-)

comment Can we Quantify Cognitive Load?
This may be slightly pedantic but may help clarify the question: is this about predicting cognitive load rather than measuring it? Or maybe measuring how much cognitive load an interface is likely to cause. (Cognitive load is a property of people but we're really interesting in measuring our designs, maybe, I think...)
