Designing documentation

I'm working on creating documentation for a programming language and development environement. We're considering creating a wide variety of material including tutorials, reference material, inline documentation, videos, searchacle examples, et cetera.

There are two things I would love to hear from anybody:

1) Books/articles/anything you know of discussing design of documentation

2) Examples of awesome documentation that you know of. Even though I'm working on programming tools, I would love examples from any domain to get inspiration.

Thanks!

Clickable paragraphs: thoughts/research?

Take a look at this page http://traffickingculture.org/news/

If you hover over the news stories, you'll see that the whole extract of each story (title, image and description) is clickable and links through to the full story. This is nice as it give a large click target, but it also leads to unexpected behavior in that the paragraph text is a link even though it doesn't look like one.

Markup like this is relatively new since, before HTML5, block level elements like paragraphs were not allowed inside link tags.

what are Interaction Design, design process

Hi,

I'm interaction design student. Lately, I came across lot of articles mentioned about interaction design process. But they haven't given any examples. 

So, I'm wondering is interaction design design process is unique to every designer or is there some standart models we can look into. Could you point me places this explains well. Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Waruna.

animation patterns for things moving

I'm looking for good examples of an item moving from one place to another and how to make that clear to the user. The specific example is a selected line within a grid; the user will click an "accept" button on that line, and then the item will leave the grid of items to be reviewed and appear in a grid of approved items. Has anyone seen a nice animation that could help make it clear what is happening?
