On-demand forms (ergo abracadabra)

I've been looking in the archives, but didn't find relevant thread: what do
you think about on-demand forms?

By "on-demand form" I mean document containing some structured data, which
can be edited by clicking on value and saying "abracadabra", what
ajaxmagically changes a line into a input field.

Ok, there is no need for "abracadabra", but it still works with it.

Main pros:
* full coherence between presentation and edit layouts,
* no need to reloading when going from reading to editing.

Cons:
* less place for even short instructions,
* values submitted one-by

Hit button for Search

I am working on a website where the feature "Search" is part of an important
way to navigate through the website. What I want to know is what is the best
button option to use for the "Search". Which of these - "GO" or "magnifying
glass icon" or "arrow" or "FIND" - is the right choice and why? Or do you
have more suggestions on this?

Thank you

Prototyping a facet nav

Hi all,

I'm working on a large content-heavy site, which will utilize guided /
faceted navigation to browse the content. Given that there are a lot
of different ways people could browse the system, I was wondering if
anyone had any tips on testing this interaction. The catch is that the
infrastructure isn't built yet.

Right now, my instinct is to prototype (html wireframes) the cases
that I expect people to use--with the knowledge that most of the site
won't be available. The test scenarios, then, would be a bit more
directed than usual.
