Yes, this is a very nice example. If anyone wants to see and weep over
a poor example, look at the lengthy manual for the Sharp Aquos HDTV I
bought recently. Dozens of buttons identified with a several-page key,
some obviously misidentified. The misidentification of others became
evident only after a few hours of trying to set the thing up.

Some pictures seem to require not just 1000 but multiple thousands of
words of explanation.

A nice example of using numbers to label parts of an image : (I quite like
orange circles).

So, if you're explaining multiple parts of a page/screen, this ought to
pretty well. "A picture is worth a thousand words" may be a hoary old
saying, but it still makes sense.

Hope this helps..
