Let's say you have a task -- for demonstration purposes only, we'll
call it Verbing the Noun. There are two ways of verbing the noun, so
one could construct headings as follows:

Verbing the Noun
Using Method A
Using Method B

As I was taught in my initial training, "using" is a poor choice for a
verb in a task heading (sound familiar? or is this just me?). In this
case, though, it may be okay. What do you think?
