comment Alternatives for Radio Button List for 'large' select areas/touch?
@rk that is an option (one can filter the list via search). The catch is that these are technical/industry terms that don't necessarily mesh to user's casual terms. Honestly, this is really a language problem, but, alas, that's out of our hands, so we're trying to make the best of things. The thought is that a lot of users are going to have to 'browse' through the list to find a term that matches their needs.

@rk in this case, it'll be a term, plus that term's definition (typically 1 paragraph of text)

I think card view is certainly an option!

But, to answer it in a UX manner = this is what A/B testing is for.

Sex sells = much more of a marketing topic than UX

comment When using Paypal, how to account for shipping cost when not knowing the buyer?
Yes, this isn't a new problem. That said, you really need to work with the sellers on this. Often shipping is fairly compartmentalized in terms of prices. Ie, shipping to the entire continental US is typically a flat rate. If you have to deal with a lot of international shipping, however, I think your only solution is to indeed make sure your sellers populate that data themselves.

comment What is a standard Visual design effect to indicate default button?
I usually treat the 'non-buttons' as things that will break the path the user is going in. So cancels or deletes or what have you. If you have two buttons going in the 'same direction' I'd probably consider making them both quite similar, and then highlight one...perhaps with a thicker border or a glow like you suggest.

comment Two common general terms on the same screen
Can you go into more detail as to what the difference is between the fields. I think in explaining that, you may come to an answer. My guess is that the two fields just need much more descriptive and clear labels. As they are now, I don't think most people would understand what the difference between 'feedback' and 'comments' would be. Both fields need a lot more context, IMHO.

comment Should numbers be written in numerals or words?
This is typically a copywriting style guide question. Certainly copywriting is a part of UX, but likely needs to be asked over on english.SE

comment What's the best body font size for responsive sites for seniors?
16px is the default browser setting in most cases. No argument it's the default, but default doesn't always = 'best'.

I'd question the point of making a city a select field in the first place.

comment How to handle users typing without input focus
But that's the problem. It will announce the field you are focused on. In a lot of cases, this will be completely disorientating. On a login form, maybe not.

comment How to handle users typing without input focus
@rk on the web the goal is often to make the page accessible in general--not have to design specifically for assistive technology.

comment How to handle users typing without input focus
There should already be a valid label tag associated with the field, which can help if laid out appropriately as suggested.

comment How to handle users typing without input focus
This can be annoying for users that want control over their cursor--especially for those using assistive technologies. As such, I strongly recommend against this. The one exception, as noted, would be incredibly simple one-task pages such as the login page (where USERNAME would be an obvious bit of content to initially focus on since it's the only thing you can do on that page).

comment Name for Monospace vs Proportional fonts?
The common terms are, indeed, monospace and proportional.
