comment Helping users understand that two, and only two options must be selected
I am guilty of using this construct! :). It's similar to jonathon's answer and it's the best use of a common construct.

comment Helping users understand that two, and only two options must be selected
I know but the requirement of 1 required , upto 3 allowed, how do we deal with that? Have one solid outlined box on the right and two others dotted? Or some other mechanism?

Thanks. I like your answer more as the visual cue is quite clear and immediate, no text parsing needed. However, how would you handle 1 or more upto 3 case? 3 dotted boxes, and then?

comment Language of language names in the language selector?
ok. ok. You guys have convinced me not to use flags, even though they are so pretty and colorful! Maybe we should design new flags for languages? I remember there was some initiative that did that.

comment Adding paging, sorting and filtering toolbars to a table
This problem will exist in any way, since you have to have an indication of those features else discoverability will go down. Any alternative you choose will use some screenspace, optimizing the space is upto you.

comment Language of language names in the language selector?
Yes, and that's why I said country of origin for a particular language as it is the most commonly used symbol for a language. While I agree that there is ambiguity here, this additional clue does help most average users. It might not be clean, or efficient but it works, as it is a common idiom.

comment What explains the current shift from glossy UIs to matte UIs?
Any idea as to why this isn't a valid explanation of observed behavior? While group behavior does have reason ; follow the herd is such a strong behavior that it is a valid explanation for a lot of mass interactions. Stock markets, Mobs, ...etc.
