html forms and autosaving

Good evening everyone!

I've been asked to write a letter of recommendation on topapply.com
Usually, they have very lenghty forms, as you might imagine.
Mine had 5-6 textboxes, as well as other elements.

I hit Save for Later and the form resets.Only the first textbox remained
I hit Back, but no, redirection was in place... somehow, my browser
didn't save the fields.

So my question is... how does one avoid this? Are there any already
implemented (preferably open-source) solutions out there?
An out-of-the-box standard thing to autosave everything...

Is the IXDA mentoring program still active?

Is the IXDA mentoring program still active? If not, can we revive it? There has been a lot of talk on various UX related forums including IXDA about new graduates having a tough time getting into industry. The mentoring program may help them.

Any guidelines/design patterns etc.. on when a downloadable format ( such as pdf/word/ppt) is appropriate compared to creating a webpage?

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate if anyone could point to me to any guidelines /
design patterns or some source on when a downloadable format ( such as
pdf / word /ppt) is a better option compared to creating a webpage.

For example, a website that talks about policies which are large
documents , it would be best if people are able to download the policy
and review it.

Or if its about a particular process, it would be best if they are
able to download the process and use the printed document to reference
while doing the process.

Any help you could provide will be much appreciated.

Thank You
