Menu caption design

I have a map application, where a user can
add/modify/delete geometric zones. Zones have names
(A, B, C etc).

I am adding the Undo functionality, and need to decide
the right design for the Undo menu item, under Edit.

If I delete a zone, should the Edit->undo menu say:
"Undo Move Zone A" or just "Undo Move"

If I delete multiple zones, should the Undo menu say:
"Undo Move Zone A, Zone B, Zone C", or just "Undo
Move"?

I can't resist joining in on this thread.

Keep in mind that IxD did not exist a few short years ago.

The cocktail hour lives!

Hello Everyone,
Those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area may be interested to know
about the rebirth of the User Experience Cocktail Hour list.

We're bringin' it back to the turn of the century!

Ahhh, how you long for the days when the best place to learn
Interaction Design was over a beer at a friend's firm.

The list, hosted by the fine folks at Boxes and Arrows, will be used
for announcements about Bay Area User Experience events.

RE: How to Get Into Interaction Design?

Or, How DID u get into interaction design?
For many programmers HCI is a relevant career move. My background is in
graphic design. I¹ve worked print graphics and corporate communication
design. I believe there are relevant comparisons between this and HCI. I¹m
self-taught in HCI principals and have applied these to an assortment of
related projects.

I started with print layout and in the corporate setting. So, I was doing
brochures, trade show signage, logos or posters.

Tab Order in Web Apps using Tags and Tiles

Hopefully a quick question.

We're working on a web application using Tiles and Custom Tags (JSP). Has anyone had any luck explicitely setting tab order with these technologies?

One of the requirements is to offer all the same functionality from the keyboard, (so tab order becomes important). I can't think of any way to ensure that there will not be tab order conflicts if the same tabIndex value is set in two different elements in two different custom tags or tiles (short of preprocessing the page to generate unique tab indicies on the fly).

All,

Has anyone ordered and actually *received* a copy of the Magnetic
Elements toolkit (from http://www.magments.com/index.html)?
I placed an order over a month ago, paid for it, and have yet to
receive a copy.

HTML combo-box?

Anyone have a good source or design for an HTML-based combo box.
It doesn't have to be the single widget design, though obviously that is
nice.
