Working on a web application prototype.

How effective is placeholder text, assuming that the user can actually see it  (re:IE). Any material on the subject?

Thanks ahead of time.

Windows Control - Status indicator

I am working on a development project for a Windows application (not web-based). The target audience is an average Windows user that will be using the application for 6-8 hours everyday. The application allows the user to perform many different business tasks. Each business task could contain several steps.

Pixel Perfect ppi

Fellow Designers,

What is the best way to design icons for multiple devices? Different devices (Andriod, Windows Phone 7) have different screen specs - each phone has a different pixel-per-inch resolution.

By what method would one ensure that icons look crisp across devices with different ppi?
