in reply to User Interface - Arranging a list in HTML

Why not just make it like a balot (voting) paper with a box the user fills in with their numerical choice next to each statement. This is a simple paridigm.

[3] Statement [ ] Statement [1] Statement [ ] Statement

If you want to get fancier you could use an onBlur() javascript to validate that the user only uses each number from 1 to 20 once. Alternatively the numerical votes could come from a javascript function that provides a drop down list of the possible votes. As a number is used it could be removed from the available votes drop down list. If you want to go further you could rearrange the list in real time as choices are made.

    I like this one. It cuts down on the calls to the server (I'm seeing a lot of dial up users) and makes for a clean list on the screen. I think the pull downs would keep the user from rearranging the list if they are not happy with it, but checking their response when they type it in looks good.
    Thank you for the input.
