I'm just finishing up designing a custom publishing tool for MSFT
Sharepoint. There's a dropdown for the content publisher to choose
which story from his/her library will be published in a particular
area. I need a visual designation for which of the stories is
currently published live. The current story does start off highlighted
in the dropdown, but I need a middle state designation, for when the
user selects another story but has not yet "applied" the change (new
one is highlighted at the top of the list, but the name of the live
one is still in the list).
The engineer wanted to put a "P" next to the live/published story, but
who's going to know what "P" means? We could just go with an
asterisk, but that has the same essential problem. I'm leaning
towards the word "LIVE" in red, in small font next to the story name
-- though it would, of course, be better to come up with something
shorter that has sufficient 'scent'. Any thoughts, O Wise Peers?
