Example of poor usability

It's definitely a good idea to be consistent within software.  This is especially true when indicating special behaviour or requirements.

For example. It's not a good idea to highlight a textbox in one part of a program to indicte that it is a required field and then highlight a textbox in another part of the program, in the same way, to indicate that the text box is read only.
