Hello All,
I need some opinions. Just wondering how folks feel about beginning
topic titles with "How to..." I'm used to beginning them with a gerund,
but the shop that I am now working for has an assorted bag of formats
and I run into this once in a while. Personally, I don't care for it
because I think the entire Help is a How to.....but I'd like some
thoughts from others.
