Horrible web and interface designer.

comment And vs “&” in web text, which is better?
Most importantly, it shows you how hard an ampersand is to read during normal text. If I have to choose between readability or saving two characters, I'll choose readability every time.

comment Font Size For Mobile Sites?
I understand what you're saying, but there's a variety of older browsers that don't scale pixel based sizes to user settings. If you're not targeting specific mobile browsers and devices, then for the browsers that don't support scaling based on user settings you get a substandard user experience. That said, I don't understand why access to HTML makes it easier apart from being able to add classes and id's which should already be there?

comment Font Size For Mobile Sites?
If you know the user environment exactly, then I agree that they're fine. But in that case, controlling font-size with em or percentage will give you the same result. Using em or percentage will also give users a better experience in situations where the environment is drastically different to what you expect, which is why there's little point to using pixel sizes.

comment Font Size For Mobile Sites?
Most mobile devices have different resolutions, different sized screens. Pixel fonts are 'fine' but there's no reason to use them when using em or percentage is so easy, it's just being lazy.

comment Which is the better user experience for a web app: an integrated support ticket module or a separate app?
@James Crook, he's asking whether it's a better user experience if his support module is attached to his site, or if it directs them to an external site for support.

comment Does moving the secondary navigation impact a users experience?
I'm not talking about moving the primary navigation at all, that would be silly. I'm talking about whether or not it makes sense to move secondary navigation in which the content, the use, and the actions expected differ.

comment Fixed-position header and menu on a web page — is that okay?
I think depending on the content, if it makes sense then having the drop downs will mean less initial choice - a good thing.

comment iPhone & Mobile Web: Pagination vs. Load more vs. Scrolling
+1 for endless scrolling. The best implementation I've seen is Facebook on both the web version and the iPhone application.
