comment Is a dummy button an appropriate way to show that a box is clickable?
Note on your note — the article you link about clicking on labels isn't so good. <label> is supported in all modern browsers so a JS reimplementation is unwise, and id= for= can be avoided by simply placing the field inside the label.

comment How should I indicate an added row of buttons above the iPad's keyboard is scrollable?
Speaking from my own experience, I find wrapping scrolling (as opposed to a selection cursor which jumps back to the top) is a bad idea because it reduces the feeling of the location of each button, and it's unnecessary when you have flick-scrolling to get to either end fast.

comment In mobile website when we use “Back” button then should it be always the titled as “Back”?
Regardless of the answer to this question, you should not be thinking of or calling it "Back" anyway, because browsers have a "Back" function built-in which is actuallyback to what you were just looking at”, whereas what your site provides is “up in the organization hierarchy of the site”.

comment “File” for name of drop-down menu
Note also that with Mac OS X Apple moved the various application-wide items (particularly Quit, but also About, Preferences, Hide) into a menu named after the application; the only not-quite-fitting item in a modern File menu is “Close Window”.

comment On an unlabelled slider, why does right mean higher, and left mean lesser?
@Bill: On valves, such as water faucets (except for mirrored "lever" types and ball valves), counterclockwise is more. This presumably derives from the conventional thread direction, but here looser = more.
