I work in transportation human factors engineering and research for land, sea, and air. My work in usability/UX includes user interface design, design guide development, empirical testing, and expert evaluation. My human factors research focuses on automation, displays, and security and safety processes. I've advanced degrees in engineering and psychology and been working in the field since 1995. My contributions to this site are my personal opinion and do not represent the policies or position of my employer or any of its associated agencies. Not that anyone was wondering.

Re: Grid-like compact presentation: The Subject-Verb table in the linked article is sort of like a grid. You can make it look exactly like a grid by putting full borders around the field controls and overlapping the borders of adjacent controls. However, now you need another way to discriminate read-only and editable fields (I don't know if Slick Grid does that -it should). Compact presentation is experimental -there's no one standard way to do it. I'm interested in variations and, especially, usability tests comparing them.
