I'm pretty busy at the moment.
  2. I've been trying to find the study I read, but its not turning up. I'll drop it here if I find it. Google docs has gone through a couple of design iterations for this feature so somewhere in their archives they must have their own usability measurements. I've personally worked on an e-learning project where after a bit of development we examined the curriculum closely were able to identify 5 different classifications of lessons.

Since the work people do on this site requires a lot of mental prossessing, you are obligated to minimize the any processing needed to navigate the interface. There is no downside to this feature -- if
