comment Why isn't the “remember me” checkbox in login forms enabled by default?
@webvitaly in the year this question was ask things have changed. It's now become standard for browsers like Chrome/Firefox to prompt the user to save their passwords. This gives control to the user, and next time they visit the fields are pre-populated. I find this approach better.

comment Is there a better character than the asterisk to indicate a modified document?
@LarsH maybe that's the birthplace of this UI feature? :)

comment How can I decide whether to use a button or a hyperlink?
You could detach Tax Bill from the group, but keep it on the same horizontal line. You're using the correct icon from jQuery UI to represent an external link. Instead of calling it Tax Bill. You could label it by the name of the external website. That would be more clear.

@JoshuaTaylor thanks guys! I didn't know about the dot. It's good that this is supported at the OS level. That makes it a standard ;)

comment Is a dummy button an appropriate way to show that a box is clickable?
Why not use a Add To Cart button like everyone else? You're doing something fancy for the sake of being fancy. I fail to see how this is easier for the user.

comment Where to place icons in a checklist? Before or after?
@Chandru There are exceptions to the rule. Sometimes the label is on the left so that the check marks align with other fields, and reading labels is not inconsistent. But, when on their own it's left-to-right.

comment Why aren't Gmail-like “on-page” dialogs more popular UI solutions?
I HATE that thing. It's the worse! I hope they get rid of it in the next update.

comment Increase font-size for larger displays with responsive design?
@DA01 em are good too, because they are relative to the font size. Whereas px is relative to page scale. One advantage is using a third-party stylesheet. If they use em then it scales correctly, but if they use px it won't match your other style sizes.
