Examples of annual reports online

I'm looking for examples of annual reports online that are good. That,
maybe, even start to make use of the online environment and what it can
do. Or at least that go beyond a PDF of the printed version!

Bonus points if they look nice.

More bonus points if they are done with a web standards markup focus.

I know, I know, not asking for much :)

Amy happy to collate and post back to the list.


- ps I posted to sigia-l also, so apologies to those who see this twice.

Designing for keyboard-oriented users

I'm putting together a discovery and research plan for improving the usability of an equities direct trading application. The primary users of the application are day traders, and because they need to act quickly to dynamics in the market in real time, they tend to be very keyboard-oriented. They are constantly scanning across multiple screens/views and don't like to take their hands off the keyboard to use a mouse.

Thus, as we look to improve the interface and functionality of the application, we need to keep mouse usage to an absolute minimum.

large tables and lists with lots of columns - where are the best practices?

Hello, I’m looking for some good practice on designing tables and lists for a corporate web site.
The challenge is how to simplify very long tables of articles (technical parts) with lots of parameters (columns).
I do have the Edward Tufte books and know that part of the story. But at this moment I’d rather study some real life examples available on the net. Anyone? Thanks!
