  1. Just a suggestion with reference to the UI 'inspirational examples' - glad others have been able to contribute some examples thank you. There are also good books around on the principles of good web design which this group and the developer community might find helpful, if we're still at the stage of looking around for examples. I'm thinking particularly of the usability classic "Don't Make Me Think" by Steve Krug and also "Forms that Work" by Caroline Jarrett and Gerry Gaffney. I'm not claiming expertise in usability myself - just saying these sources might guide us as to the principles we should apply. Hope that's helpful.
