Table data entry, dialog win, and widget focus;

If I have a dialog box, with a multi-column table in
it, where the user can enter data directly into each
column, then...

the tab key should move the user from column to the
next column, and maybe, wrapped around, and Enter key
should go to the next row etc. (like a spreadsheet).

However, when the user is done entering, a "natural"
instinct after using the keyboard to do data entry, is
to press Tab to hop to the OK button, and press Enter,
instead of using the mouse.

What is a conventional alternative to saying "OK" in
the dialog via keyboard?

Favicon and Apple Bookmark Icon

My company is an interactive agency. For a few years now as a standard
procedure we've created favicons (favicon.ico) for websites we build.
Recently, we have started creating an Apple Bookmark Icon
(customIcon.png) as well.

As an owner of an iPhone I dig the bookmark icon. But in day to day
browsing on a computer I actually use the favicon. In fact all my
browser bookmarks are simply the favicon. It allows me to have more
bookmarks without displaying any text.

examples of practical research Ph.D programmes

The Media Arts and Sciences program at the MIT Media Lab is where I
got my MS and PhD degrees. The program is highly oriented toward
synthetic (making) rather than analytic (theorizing) degrees. More or
less, if you can't demo it you can't graduate with it.

I'm pretty sure few people would regard what the Lab does as
"practical," though. The practical side-effects are really

Hope that helps,

More on re-ordering rows

Unfortunately, where I work, the role of ID and UI
engineer are forced into 1 person: me. Therefore, I
don't have the luxury, authority, or maybe, the
self-discipline to suggest the hard-to-implement
drag-n-drop DHTML design.

I am leaning towards option (b) : The user changes the
order number in a textbox to change the row order, as
opposed to (a): provide up/down buttons and a
selection list.

Here is my reasoning. Please comment.

There are numerous edit pages for this my.yahoo-style
front-end application, that require reordering of
items in a table.
