I have two style questions I'm hoping to get feedback on:

(1) In user guides, do you use the term "radio button," "option button," or
something else to describe what are traditionally known as radio buttons
among developers?

(2) When tables do not have captions, do you allow the tables to be
introduced with a colon, such as in the phrase, "The X fields are described
as follows:" -- and then a table list of fields appears?
