surfacing scattered bits of information

I'm working on a health-related project in which users will see information
about a set of conditions/diseases. For each condition, different kinds of
information is provided, including preventive information. The preventive
info itself will consist of a set of recommendations, each consisting of a
header and then a paragraph or more of explanatory text. The recommendations
themselves are grouped into different categories (clinically proven,
promising, early diagnosis, etc.).

Now, I want to enable the user to select any one recommendation and add it
to an action tracker elsewhere.

Quality Indicator

Hi, I am currently trying to design a visualization for "Quality Indicator" (QI). The QI shall represent the quality of the data that has been loaded in to the software. I have a couple of preliminary thoughts -

1. A circle which shows a traffic light signal (red/yellow/green). This however would be a problem for the colorblind folks.

2. Signal bars - a set of 5 bars with increasing height (typically used in mobile phones to show the strength of the signal). Whether the bar is filled with a color depends on the quality of the input data.

You decide - Screen Size

Sorry for bringing up a pesky off-topic issue again, but...

These screen size discussions ignore mobile devices.

Best source for graphic design talent?

I have good links with talented UI designers, but for pure unadulterated graphic design brilliance, I am a little short.

Is there a website where some of these pixel gurus live and show their work? UK specific would be good, but not essential.

Properties Browser

Hi IxDAers, 

I'm developing a screen which has a large number of attributes for an object.  Think of Dreamweaver, where you can select and change any number of object or page properties on the right hand side:

Know of a good Wiki for dictionaries?

Hi everyone,

After some research I am still to find a wiki which I could adapt to become
a dictionary. I have been trying to find something like a Wikitionary,
preferably without the ugliness but since this kind of tool seems to be
scarce I will accept any suggestions please.

Many thanks in advance!
