Chapter 8. Editing and Manipulation: Using HTML Input Controls to Accurately Capture Users’ Data

“In saying what is obvious, never choose cunning. Yelling works better.”

Cynthia Ozick
“We Are the Crazy Lady and Other Feisty Feminist Fables”

The First Ms. Reader

Owing to HTML’s limited interactive vocabulary and the complex nature of these interactions, the Editing and Manipulation layer contains some of the most challenging and difficult aspects of the overall design. In addition, the technical limitations of Web applications are particularly visible in this layer. In many cases, the ideal level of sophistication and interactivity is too difficult or costly to achieve, resulting in a variety of implementation tradeoffs and compromises. Therefore, the appropriate and practical design solution requires a delicate balance between users’ needs and technical feasibility.
