Layered/Faceted Navigation Techniques

I am looking for information on Layered (Faceted) Navigation
techniques, especially in regards to e-commerce.

I see this similar type of navigation working very differently between
most sites out there.

I was wondering if there were any favorites out there, or any research/
user studies that might assist in developing a best practice for this.

The Documentation View of Design

I'd like to validate the following sentiment that dawned at me.

Wireframes and prototypes suggest primarily that the design solutions are
presented visually, annotated with callouts or footnotes at the sidebar.

However, the same thing can be also presented in form of documentation (text
or spreadsheet).

Guidelines for opening a printer-friendly page

I'm helping to build a web application that from time to time offers
the user with a printer-friendly version of pages. It seems there are
several choices when it comes to providing the user with a
printer-friendly page. You can open the page in a couple of different

- open the printer-friendly page in the same browser window
- create a pop-up with the printer-friendly version

And then you can choose (or not) to use javascript to trigger the
browser's print dialog.

What is everyone's opinion about this process?

Difference b/w online & installed apps

I'm designing Interaction models, process flows and interfaces for an
application that can potentially be an online app or an installed one
(depending on capability, performance needs). From a design perspective,
should there be a difference between the two? There are of course inherent
interface elements in each type and technical limitations with a browser
based app (that are fast disappearing?).
