comment Why aren't HTML5 typed number inputs right aligned, and should they be?
Good point, perhaps this is why the spinner (up/down arrow) are usually outside or at least clearly delineated from the field: google image search.

comment Progress bar with mixture of determinate and indeterminate steps
Some great ideas. Perhaps denoting the different steps would be nice. I also fear that the user will need some indicator that the process hasn't frozen when an indeterminate segment has been reached.

comment Progress bar with mixture of determinate and indeterminate steps
@rewobs, @JeromeR; rereading the question I didn't make it clear that the process is an automated one with several steps (e.g. downloading, then transcoding, then uploading without user interaction at each step). Edited the question to make it clearer.

comment Progress bar with mixture of determinate and indeterminate steps
@rewobs Good question: Possibly extremely indeterminate unfortunately, think seconds to hours. Part of the problem is relying on third party processes which are out of our control (for example, uploading a video to youtube). In terms of % it could be 95% though these cases will be very rare.

comment Progress bar with mixture of determinate and indeterminate steps
It's not for a form but rather a lengthy (automated) process with discrete steps. e.g. Downloading >> Processing >> Uploading >> Etc...

comment Why do people clear the screen multiple times when using a calculator?
While this is a wonderfully colorful explanation, I'm certainly not convinced this is more convincing than other explanations given here. This reminds me of how false etymology forms. Good stories get +1 votes, better explanations aren't always as compelling. :)
