The maps, although not the sections, may overlap slightly. In these maps, the patterns are classified into abstract, concrete and terminal patterns as shown by their color coding. 8559 Chapter 3 p47-252 12/11/02 3:57 PM Page 49 3 The wu pattern language 49 Abstract, concrete and terminal patterns Abstract patterns represent the codification of principles, often derived from subjects such as cognitive psychology or ergonomics. Unlike concrete patterns, they usually have no initial context. An example of an abstract pattern that derives more from common sense than from scientific endeavour is KISS (38) .

The Amsterdam Collection of Patterns in User Interface Design contains some web usability patterns, namely: ◆ Navigation patterns: BREADCRUMBS, DOUBLE TAB, META- NAVIGATION, OUTGOING LINKS, SPLIT NAVIGATION, REPEATED MENU. ◆ Page elements: NEWS BOX, LIST BUILDER, TABBING, PAGING, WIZARD, PARTS SELECTOR, LANGUAGE SELECTOR. ◆ Searching patterns: SIMPLE SEARCH, ADVANCED SEARCH, SEARCH AREA, SITEMAP. ◆ E-commerce patterns: SHOPPING CART, IDENTIFY, REGISTERING. Clearly, some of these patterns are identical in purpose to the ones in this book.

Clearly, both areas concern usability but we quail at including the complexities of these topics. First, it would make the language large, and large things are generally unwieldy and hard to use. Second, we do not feel especially competent in these areas. We would encourage those others who are competent to set about building languages for these important topics. Personalization is a borderline case. It is clear that personalization influences usability but it is not clear exactly how. One can state that when personalization works, usability should be enhanced but it is possible that badly thought-out personalization could make a site less usable for some of its users.
