Hi Techwhirlers,

We have a bit of a debate going about the use of On and In for software
documentation. I'd like to hear what the standards are for other companies.

For example, which is better:
Click OK on the main window.
Click OK in the main window.

Does it matter? Is there a particular reason for using one over the other? I
tried to search this topic in the Techwr-l archive, but as you can imagine,
you don't get a lot of useful results when searching "on and in."

Thanks in advance!
