Technical skills of an Interaction Designer

Hi all,
as Interaction Designer I think it's a foundamental matter to have a deep knowledge of  "how it works behind the scenes" what we design for people to use.

The question is: which language (HTML, Java, Javascript, DHTML...) do you think an Interaction Designer should be fluent in and at which level?

Thanks,

Silvia

Usability on "The Fold"

Hi everyone,

I'm doing research on the new "fold" for my company website. The
latest article from Jakob Nielsen looks at Scrolling and Scrollbars
<http://www.cre8asiteforums.com/redirect/jump.php?url=lmth.11705002%2Fxo
btrela%2Fmoc.tiesu%2F%2F%3Aptth> , and appears to make some good points
about how poorly designed scrollbars can frustrate uses, create
accessibility challenges, and cause people to miss information.

Photoshop stops pasting from Clipboard

Hi all,

Anybody solved the mysterious Cut n' Paste abandonment issue with Photoshop CS4 and CS5?.

I heard it's actually a Windows problem...something about Photoshop keeps 'listening' for the clipboard, but Windows ignores the request after a while, something to the effect.

Anyway.
Here is the scenario:

Hi all, I'm new to this discussion group and have been a systems
developer/web developer for quite a while. I only recently heard the term

To use a colon or not to use a colon after field labels

Could anyone help me on the subject of whether to use colons after field
labels. I have found one accessibility paper and a few other
not-so-respected sources that indicate that colons after field labels
help screen reader users, as well as normal vision users, to expect an
input field. However, after years of including colons after field
labels, our copy dept now maintains that a colon is punctuation and
shouldn't be included after field labels. I've also found Jarrett's, "No
one cares about colons but UX people" and Luke W doesn't mention it in
his book :(.

iRise vs. Axure - Community response - Patent-free thread

First, my apologies to Andrei and anyone else who may be affected by having
links to patents in their email. I had NO idea about the impact.
In response to Josh Seiden who, speaking for the IxDA board, encouraged us
to come up with a plan of action, I'd like to start this new thread. To
anyone taking part in the discussion, please refrain from a discussion of
any patents, posting snippets thereof, or links to patent sites. Thanks!

The purpose of this thread is to discuss not the patent itself or whether
Axure infringed or not, but to discuss our response to this lawsuit as a
community.
