Precisely- But then I wanted this for an average person.

I was thinking of using it where a prescribed layout is required for an editor of an article. There needs to be an image/graphic/etc in one paragraph on a particular column. I think to describe this, the wording 'an illustration' covers it.

comment Look and 'feel' of a web page/site/app
I think this is indeed more accurate. The experience could encompass the feel, looks and any other observation on the matter. So simple and nice.

comment Look and 'feel' of a web page/site/app
@Joachim - This is what I'm questioning- isn't there a word we can use for 'Not necessarily referring to tactition, more to an emotional feeling...' when describing the perception of a webpage? To settle on just 'feel' as I said, seems a little lazy wrt software/GUIs.

I understand the Wikipedia excerpt. The thing is, say you meet someone at some social arrangement. The first sense we use is sight- we look at them (although some tend to use other means). By 'observing' them we create the notion of their character- "gosh he's interesting/annoying in the way he does xyz". Even by feeling their touch we can also add to this 'character' thing we are building- "mmm touchy". How they present themselves to just our sense of sight builds up a character profile. Back to something you see on-screen, you are in fact not feeling anything but perhaps characterising it?

comment Pluralizing “personnel”?
Nice. The usage does imply personnel is correct. Persons in this case would be a generalisation of all the memberships in the store.

comment Pluralizing “personnel”?
Thanks. 'People' would be too general in the context- it could mean customers + employees + special guests combined- hence diluting the overall impression of the launch (only 100 people on launch? bleh).

comment Pluralizing “personnel”?
To me- when the store launches- there are extra helpers around- which means there is a difference between an employee and a helper. There are also special guests invited for the event (who can be seen to 'belong' to the store and separate from customers). Therefore, the word 'employees' implies- under the store's payroll but personnel can be a generalization of all persons 'belonging to the store'.
