Its a beautiful sunny day in dublin and I have another question..
Are there any papers or guideline for the use of names in User Manuals -
I know the John Doe and Joe Bloggs are busy men? But are there any
guidelines - I don't want to alienate any culture/user/sex etc.?
I was wondering does anyone have any advice - The software is at present
distributed around Europe - but there are expansion plans for the US.
