Imx Fix in my experience

Over the past two years I have found myself doing a lot of web application prototyping. It means a lot of (D)HTML, CSS and JavaScript coding, all with the hope of representing business requirements (in a way that is actually doable on the web). One major issue on every prototype I have worked on is the content within the prototype.

Developers often talk about 'greeking' interfaces and content of sites, which means putting in a bunch of nonsense text where the real content should live (eg, dsfgsdfg sdfgsdfgsdfg sdfgsdfg). After all, Java developers aren't content developers and should not be wasting their time with content, but with how it is stored, processed and transported. This is a barrier to understanding that you have to remove.
