I am writing my first documentation for an application that runs on a
tablet PC, and I'm trying to find out if there are any "standards" out
there yet for the terminology to use to describe user actions. Do you
say tap instead of click? Tap twice instead of double-click? Of course,
there can be no right-click or enter.

Does anyone have experience with this or know of any resources I can
