comment Measurement to use when designing for desktop and mobile
@Thomas: I do agree with you on some points, and if I had the privilege to choose I might have opted for another solution, but this is how the client wants it. I still think it might work out since a lot of clutter is supposed to be hidden on mobile platforms.

@JohnGB every device has a default base font size defined then?

comment Measurement to use when designing for desktop and mobile
Right, this is one of the paths I am interested in, so very valuable information. However, and please correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the em unit based on what font size the parent element has (with inheritance of course)? How do I then determine what base font size to use? Is it desireable to have all letters the same physical size across all platforms and screens or how should go about this?

comment Should the input field accesskeys in my form be semantic or physically clustered?
@MichaelZuschlag yeah, I have seen both solutions too. I would definitively agree with you on the importance of focusing on what the general use case would be and make the choice with this in mind.

Just a quick comment on the enter-key in the Notes field: As a user you probably expect the enter-key to insert a newline in a multiline textbox. One solution would be to use Ctrl+Enter to submit. It is kind of the defacto standard in those situations I would think.

comment How to check correct font size?
Firebug is an extension for Firefox which works in a similar way. You can trace styles and change both CSS-rules and actual html-markup without making changes to your document.

comment Dashed underline on required fields
Thanks for your comment. I have revised the form again after a lot of comments, people in general seems to want the asterisk on the left hand side of the label. I think it is time for an update!

Thanks for your reply @jelumalai! I have considered marking out the optional fields. However the screenshots does not show the whole thing, and there are quite a lot of fields that are optional.

Nice addition to the discussion! This is definitely something to think about when designing a webapp such as the one I am working on. Thanks @AndrewLeach!

comment Dashed underline on required fields
Great stuff @SchroedingersCat! I do believe that most swedes think the same way about conventions on the web as most people who use the web all over the globe. Computers and perhaps the web in particular has given us a new way of looking at user interfaces, and the 'link convention' where the text is underlined is deeply rooted. Cultural differences and user interfaces are interesting, and important. However the web standards of today has greatly influenced how we think and behave, at least when we browse the web, and that is also something to think about, right?

@JonW, I would not say that the word mandatory (or obligatorisk in Swedish) is commonly used on a conversation basis. That's why I made the choice to re-write it and use other words, make it a little bit friendlier if you will. No slap on wrist needed. I like a good discussion, hey that's why I am here!
