Hi all,

Is it common to include trademarks in a UI?

For example, we have a license option window that lists the various
options customers can purchase; TM appears between parentheses next to
some of the options.

The Microsoft Manual of Style recommends not using the TM symbol in
software elements. Opinions?

If the trademark should appear in the UI, is it acceptable to just use
TM between parentheses instead of the uppercase TM?
