comment Save icon, is the floppy disk icon dead?
@Charles I can't think of many cases where those might be confused or would represent different actions

Terms like 'modal dialog' are likely to be understood by programmers, but will rarely be understood by the average user.

comment Learning Curves on experimental sketches.
I haven't tried IE9 yet, but I'll take your word for it! I agree that there can be some edge cases w.r.t. UI where creativity and experimentation can be beneficial. However, I think those are rare cases, and your application should only experiment with its domain as opposed to that of the OS.

comment How to create bands of number ranges for a field?
Looks quite good, but isn't there an error in your example? It should be 80 and above in the last line, no? Also, what would happen if you deleted one of those inner ranges?

comment Best Icon for minimize
@Harald: I think Chris made that point - it's just not clear in the original question whether an accordion is the only thing that's required, or if we're also dealing with elements representing windows.

comment Best Icon for minimize
I'd argue the dropdown arrow does something /slightly/ different - it displays a screen element that is overlaid on top of the current interface, whilst what we're discussing here is something that significantly changes the existing layout. But still a +1 for the overall point :)

comment How to represent a one time action
This would certainly work if there are other limited actions that can be repeated; for example, if some action or another can be repeated 10 times, the marker will become obvious when its number decreases to 9
