comment Best method of rating passwords
However, that Bank of America password validation is awful, limiting a password to 20 characters, and not allowing spaces or other symbols should not be done. A password should be able to contain ANYTHING.

@Erics, save button in a live document. The comments are merely about the reason for modifying the document

comment Optional Comments on Saving
@BenBrocka, I'm not disagreeing per-say, however, I suppose I am used to using source control systems that are setup to prompt for checkin comments when you "save". It's having this checkbox in order to change the functionality of the save button that bothers me.

@BenBrocka, yes, that too would make more sense, having a button instead of a checkbox to allow the user to add comments prior to saving. The reason the save opens comments though, is the comments are for the reason you are changing the record.

comment How do I make a table row on a web page look clickable?
Signify the fact it's a link without a mouseover. Show it blue (navy?) all the time, and change the cursor to a hand on mouse over... non-clickable rows are black. Or whatever. It's a subtle difference, but the rows ARE different, and something should identify them as such.

comment How do I make a table row on a web page look clickable?
You have to show some other state changing, bolding, changing colour, something that makes the user go "This is different...oh, the cursor is a hand, I can click this". Ideally, the clickable row should share as much with a normal link on your site as possible.
