If you go about it this way, don't be surprised if you get a "Get Bent" in
response to any question you ask in the future. (if you get a response at
all...) This is a small issue. Don't turn it into a major battle about
respect and job responsibilities. It isn't worth it. If you have a style
guide that covers this issue, point to it, shrug, and move on. If not, write
a style guide that covers this issue, point to it, shrug, and move on. :)

Remember, engineers know things. Things that we need to know. They are our
friends... smelly, pompous, moody friends* maybe, but friends all the same.

HTH,

want to poke him in the eye!
