comment Desktop patterns for displaying long lists of sorted data
@o.v. Absolutely - the suggestion I made under 'Linguistics Case' of a top-down representation of the data indicating where you are is an approach to handling your need of scrolling through large sets of data. This is akin to the iPhone's displaying of letters as a shortcut to finding contacts. :)

comment How I can make primary navigation links look more like buttons?
@CharlesWesley With respect, I disagree. This question is a case of how to design links so they give a good UX to visitors. I can see how others working on link design could use this question and its answers for pointers on designing their own site.

comment How best to combat right hand column blindness
@Justin - very good point and one I didn't think of. Still, if you are going to put ads on your site's right column, it will be harder to sell to your users as an area they should pay attention to! Too many sites fill their right columns with vague content and I personally don't bother to even take a look unless they do something really different.

comment What do you do when you have too many choices in a checkbox field set?
Consider adding illustrations and tiling the options to make them more interesting. Many people will not bother when they see a big mass of text - once you add in your text descriptions it's only going to deter more users from reading everything.

comment Should a full-sentence HTML link include the period in the linked text?
To play devil's advocate against the 'don't link the period' crowd (of which I am one), there is an added clickability with a slightly larger link. To be clear, I don't find this a compelling argument; just interesting.
