Monday, I start writing test scripts for the first time ever.

I'm told a test script is basically a table with columns for the
written step to accomplish something, expected results (often a screen
shot), pass/fail/blocked results, the initials of the tester, and the
date the test was run.

I fill in the first two columns and some other poor soul gets to fill
in the other three.

On the plus side, doing this means that a large percentage of my user
guide will be written before I even have to start creating it.
