Description: Should we have a distinct section for the currently selected facet filters or show them inline in every facet?
If inline, how do we make sure all filter values are shown (e.g. the predefined Aves search does list the Aves facet value due too small counts) - arrange them at the top for each facet?]]>

I was really advocating to remove the SELECTED FILTERS section altogether, and let the facets speak for themselves.

From today's discussion:

    single selection filters show the selected value within the facets section. They need a "remove" option to reset the facet category to display all available values again, so that a user can change their filter on the facet
    multiple selection filters (e.g.: extinction status, higher taxonomy, distribution) should ideally continue to display the available values after select / refresh, with the selected ones marked. With the non-selected ones showing, they can be added to the selection through marking them. Marked ones can be removed by de-selcting the mark (tick box or similar)

NB: in a download, it would still be good service to add a summary of the search that generated this download, in a form that allows the user to reproduce this later. But this should rather be a text file supplied with the download, not something to copy off the screen.

We should indeed make sure that all filter values are shown, or where not possible (higher taxa), that a) there is an indication that there are more in the popup, and that b) the already selected facets bubble to the top regardless of number of records

We need to come up with sth today so we can finish the search this week.
Shall we:
 - show facet filters on top of each facet
 - remove filter section

yes, we shall:
show selected facet filters on top of each facet
remove the "selected filters" section at the top. according to Fede re. CLB-17, this is currently only still there for debugging purposes and will be removed

Comment: selected facets are not in the top of each facet list
