Or, the fun of committee decisions...

What are people's studies/feelings about quantity box versus a link
that reads edit quantity, and then they can change the quantity?

I like simple plus/minus signs to click and increment/decrement the
quantity. People usually don't have their hands on the keyboard having just
clicked something to get to a cart view (or some other such navigation).
Maybe you have the box in between these operators for, say, bigger
quantities that would take a while to increment to.

As to requiring a click to edit, man, that just seems like bad mojo. Why
make them take that extra action? Also, if they have a list of items they
might want to just tab through the quantities (once they get their hands on
the keyboard for the first one). If it is a styling concern, you could
style it to fit with some sort of indicator they can edit in place and
change the style to feel like an input when they do.

/- is good. I also agree on as few clicks as possible.

What about an Ajax update. A live edit on the page much like the
titles and descriptions of Flickr photos. Display the number and
make it editable by clicking it.
