comment Should I include the month name in my select list for credit card expiration month?
I see your point here. But @DanM raises a really good point that some users would take that to mean "August 8th". Since most cards tend to format their months with a leading zero, I would want to keep it. I could possibly create a JavaScript solution to achieve what you propose which would allow most people to type the month.

I have accepted your answer because I think it would have the most usability to most people internationally. We have a product that sells in several countries.

I actually prefer using text boxes too. I seem to recall a particular brand of credit card which uses actual month names on it, but I can't verify that.

If Paypal, Amazon and Newegg all jumped off a bridge would you do the same?! J.K. That's a good answer. +1

comment Common web app usability gotchas?
If anyone turns off Javascript on their browser, 90% of the websites out there these days won't work properly for them. Therefore it wouldn't really be a "gotcha". They're used to it, those "javascript-haters".

comment Pros/Cons of PSD mockups vs. HTML mockups
I have experienced this. Something that has helped to get around this a bit is by adding Javascript click handlers that throw alert('this is not implemented'); and other similar tactics. - On the flip-side, there is some truth to the fact that HTML mockups (if done well) get you closer to the finished product.
