One more easy one for today. What is the img tag width height you are using for the diagrams in html?

Use the same standard guidelines that websites use for developing good user interfaces.

That means having html pages that are easily viewed and displayed on a monitor with a 1024x768 screen resolution; maybe up to 1280x1024. Also, grayscale your images so your submission isn't 300 gigs in size. You don't need to include HD images in your assignment.

Is it ok to have images that need to be zoomed in?

My sequence diagrams get compacted when I export them from MagicDraw so that they can fit into the page. The only way to view them is to zoom in.

Thanks a lot.

What is your definition of zooming in ? Clicking on the + sign that appears on the HTML page ? The end image for sequence diagrams will definitely be huge. There is no way you can fit them in 1024 X 768. As long as the viewer can scroll the contents of the image and view them clearly, you are good.

I think the advice is not to provide zoom in etc - I think I saw this in the Humphrey Shiel presentation or book - dont remember. Also scrolling was discouraged. But with all these "non-functional" requirements to the submission process it makes it very difficult. May be you need to simplify the diagram - but then there is yet another advice that the diagram should not be too trivial :-)
its a balancing act for sure.

You can always mail them a hard disk

So if my diagram images have sizes less than 1280x1024 pixels but bigger than 1024x768, it's still okay, is not it?

Thanks a lot.
