Hoping people could help me with a bit of research -- pointers to articles would be great, but anecdotal would be better than nothing. I'm trying to find out whether there are significant design differences (and design preferences amongst web users) between websites of different European countries. For example -- do the English have a greater liking for Flash than the Germans? Do the Swiss prefer minimal grid-based designs and the Italians put more emphasis on copywriting? On the other hand, if anyone believes very strongly that there are no significant differences whatsoever, then I'd like to know, too. Grateful for any opinions! francois _____________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for viruses by MessageLabs.
