comment How to enhance bilingual - auto suggest search box?
I think I'm saying, what is wrong with getting back both results and let him choose? Is the search result an exact word or part of a sentence?

comment List of non-confusable characters
human read as in accurately? or can they just recall in a different way? is it xqurrt code? or can you name it "jerico"? which is an obvious misspell of jericho?

comment Should a website look presentable without StyleSheets?
Depends, what is the purpose of the site? Governmental? Public appearance? Directed towards a specific audience? Web based application?

What's wrong with searching for "come" and getting results that use "come" in English and "come" in Italian? users know the difference don't they?

comment Disable or remove close button
I would add, if you let the user close the popup before the ad is over, AT LEAST, you would still have the user in site... if you don't, chances get higher in losing the user all together. ADs are fine, going through them is okay, as long as you promise something worth watching after it, and let user decide to well... watch this later.

comment eCommerce: single currency vs multiple currencies?
but... what about bank charges for exchange rates? banks impose different rates than promoted ones, so if I am in USA, and I pay by USD 20.00 USD, by the time it reaches your bank it would be not exactly the amount I initially thought it would be, but minus bank fees

comment Are there unambiguous words for alert boxes?
@dan1111 well think of one positive effect of having the button say it all, you don't have to take your eyes off the button to know what it does, if in doubt, look back and read the paragraph before it. In most windows dialogs (the old ones anyway) it was particularly frustrating that they usually make a statement, then ask the question, then "yes" "no"! if the question comes first it is much easier, but sometimes that isn't an option. "You are about to lose your day's work, are you sure you want to quit application" "yes!"

comment Are there unambiguous words for alert boxes?
@dan1111 not quite sure I follow, are you saying that the wording is not enough or is it too much wording? If you put in the right title, like: Quit application? then "Yes" alone is enough, but if you want to give the user like two lines of explanation, then "Yes, quit application" summarizes the situation, Yes alone is frustrating, yes what? I think I've seen "Yes, do it" to work on most websites and applications, but then again, I'm an extreme driven to distraction person, not a good test subject :)

how is that? what more to read its just that what should appear to user.
