[Sigia-l] DHTML Menus and HTML Widgets

Interesting. I think I side with Ziya on this one. I think Design and
Programming are two separate tasks requiring creative and logical skills
respectively with a strong bridge of communication needed in between. In my
experience, the communication has been critical. As a designer, I don't
on occasion), however, I do feel responsible for reviewing my design ideas
with the my tech-head cohorts -- BEFORE I present those ideas (in the form
of wireframes) to clients for approval. In turn, when the tech-heads are at
liberty to do their own design (eghads), I expect that they will seek out my
feedback before saying "done". After working with the same team for over a
year, I think we're finally getting it :)

While I sympathize with the principle of what you've said, the fact of the
matter remains that in regard to interactive UI, designers design and far
too often yet don't have a very good understanding of the technologies
that are being used to implement that design.
Suppose that I submit and earn approval of a design that requires a lot
of gee-whiz dynamic HTML.
If I do not (for the purposes of this argument) have a keen understanding
impractical, at worst impossible.
If the site is baselined for Netscape 4 without any latitude for
degradability, I have just consigned myself to several days of hell no
matter the circumstances.
In any case, if I'm designing widgets without a solid knowledge of what
the underlying technology can (and can't) do, grief will result.
