This article begins by describing a recent argument in print about interface design in human-computer interaction. The argument was provoked by published illustrations of some prototypes of dialogue boxes. It was about the methods used in designing for 'culturally diverse' users, about testing and intuition, usability and style, and about the undeclared assumptions and biases of designers. The account of the argument is followed by a commentary which raises questions about the positions taken by both sides; some of these questions have already arisen in the design of print 'interfaces'. The article concludes by pointing to wider questions which arise in designing for cultural diversity - questions which come up against the limits of designing.
