1. Does the modal window have a title, and if so, what is it?
Exceptions? Warning? Note? Just a graphic?
>>I am determining the name of the list and the window title (lucky me, eh?).

2. Who's your audience? Will anyone understand what Exceptions means? If
Exceptions is used by the error window, wouldn't they be able to put 2
and 2 together?
>>Audience is very non-technical with high school (maybe some college) education. My point is that I don't think they'll understand what Exceptions means. I guess I'm unclear on how common the term is and for non-techies, does the name imply the function?
