comment How to reference (and provide links to) online content in offline media?
Thanks for your answer. My current concern with vanity urls is having too many of them (we're currently approaching a 300 urls mark :), having too verbose ones or having collisions. I'll update my question to reflect that

comment Is it better to represent simple labeled information as table or just text with subheadings?
-1, this sounds like a strong case of iconophilia that has been a designer plague for years now. Unless the graphic is immediately obvious (by convention or imagery simplicity), it just adds confusion. You're not to try and make a smart sophisticated rebus, but an intuitive interface and a pleasant experience. Take this washing machine panel (not naming the brand) - while it has all the buttons needed for soiling, ironing, time travel and cake, it clearly doesn't have any washing buttons O:-)

comment Mixing Full Page-Width Navbar With A 960px Body
any examples? can't think of any site with full-width navbar content i.e. there are many with full-width navbar but its content would still be well-aligned

comment Selecting items for different categories in a dropdown
+1 for icons and un-cluttering the UI a bit. I would disagree with your statement that prepended indicators would not work - think of the input field and the dropdown having some padding added on the left and show the icon there instead; this could be easily excluded from the matching algorithm. The bonus of such approach would be users' increased ability to scan potential matches for compatibility (which cannot be comfortably done if presented in a non-grid form)

comment Selecting items for different categories in a dropdown
@dnbrv: ah, of course it doesn't (imo would still be a good idea to keep it on top of whatever accessible method is chosen as a base); re #2: the intention to move it to the other side of the dropdown was so that it does not interfere with the primary function of selecting an option. Admittedly, this was an effort to up the aesthetics as well (same text pushed left against the product title? ugh), but seems flawed now. Maybe some kind of dropdown grid would work, with a clearly dedicated second column for the status field?

@JonW: I did my best to rephrase the question - if you still believe it's an exact duplicate of other questions already answered, please merge it with the best match. I'd hate to have MFrank2012's answer go to waste
