Chapter 9. Interface Design Standards > Screen Design Templates

Screen Design Templates

If you look at any given Web environment, you will find a limited number of page types that account for about 85% of the development.[1] Some of the most common page types are home pages, forms, wizards, and database maintenance pages. The number of page types is not infinite; you might need a total of 10–15 page types for an entire environment.

[1] This figure is based on HFI's 20 years of experience in user interface design and standards development.

Make templates of commonly used page types and then modify them to create the specific instances you need. For example, on a form you would change the headers and field labels. But you would not need to change the Enter button name or the conventions of left alignment and required field marking.
