Re: Question about warning and caution icons
A word of caution: CYA. Make even more sure than usual that your contract specifies that the client is responsible for all errors in content. You don't want to be the guy blamed for any accidents that result from using the equipment.
Oh yeah, I was triple-redundant in that department. It's their puppy for sure.
I would propose something even more radical: where possible, eliminate or minimize the need for the warnings in the first place. You still want to include a warning message (redundancy decreases the chance someone will miss a key warning), but the warning message should not be the only way to prevent a disaster.
