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).

Anyone have a good source or design for an HTML-based combo box.

Fwd: RE: Use of icons v. hidden triggers for rollovers

Regardless of who said it, it unfortunately won't
work for what I am doing. I can't violate the
language-learning pedagogy by always showing English,
otherwise the exercise is invalid and the learner does
not learn the language.

I thank you all for your suggestions, but I think I
need to look elsewhere for answers. If anyone knows of
a list of instructors of secondary language learners
who also happen to understand good interface design,
please let me know!
