comment Please recommend a widget to alter ratios totalling 100%
I have to admit that this is pretty much the same as my existing solution, except for looking like bars instead of sliders, and also adding a bar for the total, which is useful visual feedback.

Can someone please add my comment above as an answer? As a new user I can't add an answer yet.

The demos here: buger.github.com/skill_weight_ui/# essentially answer my question. (They come from this question, ux.stackexchange.com/questions/3736/… which Jan's comment lead me to. I think I'd go for the "standard" version (with the "over 100%" warning), rather than one of the relative ones, as they effectively destroy data that the user might have wanted to preserve. I'd need to work on the affordances, as the slide behaviour is very hard to discover, and I'd also want to retain text fields for manual input.

Jan: this one (linked from there) is even more relevant: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/3736/… (and includes the Photoshop gradient control Rahul suggested below). Some very good suggestions there, which I'm still digesting.

Marian: it depends on whether your definition of UX includes interaction design.
