Subject:within vs. in From:"Tammy Van Boening" <Tammy -dot- VanBoening -at- healthlanguage -dot- com> To:<techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Thu, 17 Jan 2008 11:49:21 -0700
I can find all kinds of references for the correct use of in to vs.
into, but nothing for within vs. in. I use "in" and I have a SME who
insists on "within." It's not worth getting my hackles all raised for
this issue, but for my own edification, any thoughts, references, etc?
To me, they mean the same thing and simpler writing is better, so I
stick with "in." (Kinda' like on or upon.)
