comment Should a user be informed if their Do Not Track request is honoured?
In the EU, you do have to let users know if your site uses cookies. The alert would be a very good place to also reassure users about DNT. You can give them a cookie to make sure you don't show the message anymore when they accept, as long as you explain what that cookie is for in the "more information" bit. You should also have a permanent link in your footer to your cookie/tracking policy. I think this is very well implemented on gov.uk.

comment Next vs. Continue
I would say next where there's a predefined number of steps that the user is aware of, and continue where there isn't. Just a preference though.

comment Studies about yellow increasing readership of technical materials?
Bright yellow as in your image doesn't look technical at all to me. Soften it a bit (like a legal notepad) and it'll look much more technical IMO.

comment For programmers, what's the most intuitive keyboard shortcut for switching between programming logic and unit tests?
It's common practice in browser-based apps not to allow choosing shortcuts. I agree it would be useful to, but an arbitrary selection of keys (depending on the browser) won't be allowed, which any interface needs to accommodate. Until that can be developed, I need to find a sensible default.

comment What's a good shortcut key for a global shortcut
I'm pretty sure it's because, by OS design, no program can interfere with the function of Ctrl-Alt-Del, so it's a good place to bring up a menu which has reboot, task manager, etc.
