comment How do we stop users overpaying in financial web forms?
Yes, but what about it isn't proper UI? How would you fix it? This is a rant, not an answer.

comment Disabling submit-button until the user has completed the form
@Samiullah - I guess you could disable the button with JavaScript, but you might get an undesired flicker before it happens.

comment Don't hide or disable menu items?
@Assaf Lavie - yes, the save button should always be enabled. Users are paranoid. Let them have their button, even if it doesn't do anything.

comment Don't hide or disable menu items?
Maybe it would make sense to gray the items out, but still allow them to be clickable (so you can pop up a message saying "You can't do that because ..."). Not sure how many GUI toolkits support that though.

comment What are the best practices for background images?
@pir abdul wakeel, in that case, I'd still recommend running the image through ImageMagick to reduce the size and quality (you can probably get away with 80% or lower quality). The background image in your example is way bigger than it needs to be.
