Hi Shadi,

Personally I like the drop-downs. This is meant to be a _simple_ search, and
the options of just one category from each list fits this criteria for me,
rather than the (growing) checkbox list that allows one to search on
multiple criteria from each list.

However, I'm in support of Justin's suggestion that we need to add "web
interface" or similar to the 'platform' list in this presentation as
otherwise folk are likely to try and select the OS that they are currently
using which is not necessarily what they should do.

Andrew

Hi,

There are currently two implementations of the "Simple Search" page:

* Using checkboxes
 <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/tools/simple>

* Using drop-down listboxes
 <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/tools/simple-slh>

While the first version seems more self-explanatory, it uses much more space
and may be more complex to use. Especially if the entries for language etc
get even longer (which we anticipate).

Suggestions and comments on how each one of these works or does not work for
you is welcome.

Regards,
  Shadi
