comment Can commented-out code be valuable documentation?
Indeed, I meant human readability. Small hint here: your most important liability in programming is your code. So, less is truly more here.

comment Is the carriage-return char considered obsolete
@back2dos I must admit 'closer to the network center' was very vague in terms of HMI. I was thinking in terms of the information system boundaries and specifically machine-machine interaction. The information a user provides is also part of a (knowledge) network, which is a key insight to understanding the network relationship I was talking about. By using the word 'center' I implied there is only one center, so 'nexus' would have been a better term.

@back2dos: In large systems, complexity should be avoided in the middle of the network. Mapping, which resides closer to the network center, isn't always a trivial job.

comment Is the carriage-return char considered obsolete
@back2dos: Obviously, all production quality software should be robust (within certain parameters). However, it is more effective to validate software when the state space is minimized. Therefor one should try to minimize the amount of possible input that is allowed.

comment Design backward and forward button operations of a browser
All navigation is unidirectional, so a double-linked list would not be necessary. XOR lists are a nice optimization when you live in the 80's. Two stacks are simple to understand, debug and communicates the idea of a history API the best.
