Enhance Usability by Highlighting Search Terms

· 27 Comments

Google’s cache offers users a copy of your website with their search terms highlighted. You can do the same thing and make it easier for users to find what they’re looking for — whether they’re coming from an external search engine or your own site search — by making their search terms easy to spot.

· 36 Comments

Invoices that obfuscate information, incorrectly state terms or arrive incomplete can be a massive headache for all parties.  Strategic timing and attractive presentation are also important, as they can help “soften the blow” by making your invoice seem less like a stale demand for money and more like a friendly letter.

· 151 Comments

Plus it handles differently sized images without a hiccup. Enjoy!
