Subject: Is there a term for this?

A friend of mine wonders:
"So if you have a list of items on a website, printed document, or other means of communication, and someone doesn't notice one of them, it seems to me that moving everything to the top in bold blinking colored fonts, while it might briefly solve the problem, does so by causing the problem for the next two times . . . is there a term for what I'm talking about, and is it a concept in use?"

I certainly know what he's talking about, but I'm an informally trained lone tech writer. Does anyone have any suggestions?
