comment Is there a better way than zebra stripes
You've said how you do it, and you've given advice, but you haven't actually said why you do it that way, or explained why your solution is better than alternatives. Could you expand your answer with some reasoning?

comment What is the appeal of old style numbers and why do modern fonts still include them?
I would suggest the exact opposite - old-style/lowercase numbers are more suitable for large volumes of text because they fit the natural flow created by the letters and are less jarring. As Bakabaka points out, you'd want to use modern-style/uppercase numbers in the same situations as you'd want to use uppercase letters - to draw attention to something - and has a much bigger impact if it's dropped in the middle of a paragraph. The eye is naturally drawn to the number in a way that it otherwise wouldn't.

comment One-to-many list items in trigger-response model
Are there any situations in which a trigger could lead to multiple responses, or is this strictly a X-to-one setup?
