Clickable paragraphs: thoughts/research?

Take a look at this page

If you hover over the news stories, you'll see that the whole extract of each story (title, image and description) is clickable and links through to the full story. This is nice as it give a large click target, but it also leads to unexpected behavior in that the paragraph text is a link even though it doesn't look like one.

Markup like this is relatively new since, before HTML5, block level elements like paragraphs were not allowed inside link tags.

Frameworks for rapid prototyping with HTML, CSS and JavaScript

Hi all,

I've been researching a bit on what is the best for rapid prototyping using HTML, CSS, JavaScript.

Until now I was using Balsamiq Mockups, Axure and tools like that but recently I've realized that for some purposes could be appropriate to use "handmade" HTML with style and interactions and refine it and add interactions throught an iterative process.

But I think for rapid prototyping a framework is needed and have to exists already some goods alternatives that make the life easier to designers/developers.

What would you recommend in those cases?

Which prototyping software is best for interactive prototypes? Axure, iRise ... other?

I want to find a great interactive prototyping tool.

Note that I said "interactive."  Interactive wireframes are fine; but static wireframes are not.

Clean, production-ready code is not necessary. I don't need collaboration or documentation features.  Flow diagrams are only a plus.

Which tools should I spend the time to research?  iRise?  Axure?  Others?

Which programming language should I learn?!

I am a new graduated interaction designer and have just started my professional career in a consultant company.

Now I need your advice about what should I focus on? a new language like C or continuing with html and css? and what more I should add to this list!

thanks for your help in advance!

A hybrid prototype — the holy grail of wireframing

After reading through Zaki Warfel's Prototyping, I hoped it would shed light on the most effective techniques. It was a very good read and included some invaluable insights on progressively iterating from paper models to high fidelity designs. It's led me to make some assertions about prototyping tools...

Thoughts on HTML prototyping before design?

I am currently working on an HTML prototype using IxEdit (New window) (by the way it's a great tool) to add interactions. Thoughts on the process of:
