interested folks here are about the interaction design
aspects of embedding privacy, security, and user control

Re: Usability on "The Fold"

Does anyone have any thoughts or feedback on what the "new" fold is?

Back in 1999, webmonkey did some work on determining the fold size on common browsers.
They took screenshots of browser chrome from the Netscape 4 browsers all the way up to IE
6, and overlayed them to see how much real estate was left. Here's the article:

Usability of using Special Characters in System-Generated One-Time Passcodes

I am looking for usability concerns and guidelines regarding the use of
special characters in system-generated password codes. Any comments or
examples are appreciated.

Here's the situation: A system-generated code is sent to the user via e-mail
so he/she can type it or copy and paste it when going through the process of
obtaining a digital identity. A second system-generated code must be
delivered to the user by a supervisor, person-to-person, which may be by
phone call or also by e-mail.
