Description of problem:
As you can see at screenshot exclamation mark at end of error message is not obvious. It seems that sentence continues and rest of it is hidden. Only if user zooms page user can see that it is exclamation mark.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.79 Safari/537.36
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open cluster create wizard
2. cluster name leave empty and input journal size to 0
3. check end of error messages

Actual results:
It is not obvious that at end of error messages is exclamation mark and it seems like end of sentence is hidden.

Expected results:
Exclamation marks are obvious.

Comment 2 Ju Lim 2016-06-07 16:47:07 UTC
Although the exclamation mark is not visible completely (which is the actual bug), from a UX perspective, we would suggest removing exclamation marks from all error/warning messages.

As a best practice, the error/warning message should:

(1) Avoid using exclamation marks in the message as this could be perceived as "scolding" the user.

(2) You probably don't need to use camel case in the message, e.g. Journal Size can be written as Journal size in the message.

(3) Error/warning messages should be helpful, e.g.

    Invalid journal size. Specify a journal size value between 2 and 1024.

Related to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1343097.

Suggested priority is low and can be addressed after feature freeze.

Comment 3 :Deb 2016-06-08 14:19:06 UTC
Agreed with Ju here, in favor of removing the exclamation mark.

However, we should be careful selecting typefaces, cause in some scenario an exclamation mark is completely viable and this bug will crop up no matter what.
