True or False: In a perfect world we'd all createhtml clickable wireframes after the static ones have been done

True. For relatively sized fonts, legibility, localization, above-the-fold
positioning, and reality-checking, it's the best step before moving to
"development". With the right front-end coder, it's only a little slower
than updating wireframes - once built and tweakable, sometimes faster.
This could be my special case, but with our outsourced developers,
prototyping also drastically reduces the ambiguity of docs alone, or doc'd
wireframes - sometimes, no matter how thorough your docs, you miss things
without a prototype - logical field sizes being one of them (incidentally,
why is 255 still the default "comment" field size, when most systems have
very few restraints on the size of data they can handle?).
Now that I think about it, in a truly *perfect* world, I wouldn't have a
job, as good design would be ingrained in the human psyche.
