Beth, without attempting to address any of the Word/FM issues (I've never
used Frame in 20+ years of this game, so I have no idea) ... It seems to me
that the very fact the boss is chuckling means she wouldn't mind being
asked. It's in fact the ideal situation for asking about her reasoning.
I'd say, don't be timid. Ask her! Not dramatically or anything, Just
mention it again, lightly as before, and when she starts to laugh, say "I
take it you've been through this discussion before" or something like that,
and let her tell you about it. You can even mention that this is an
on-going wrangle among your techwr-l buddies.

At least, that's what I'd do. Of course, I'm not there and I can't guage
your developing relationship with your boss, but that's how I treat mine :)
