I am always honest in responding to what I'm currently being paid. I'd
rather set a good tone with an employer.
When asked about salary, I usually respond that I'm being paid X, and
were I to be made an offer I would expect that it reflect any changes in
responsibilities and cost of living (if moving to a new area). That sort
of puts it in their court, and forces them to make the first move. Then
you could negotiate up from there by quoting what you know about market
rates and such.
