I already acknowledged yesterday that "“Press ENTER or click OK.” would be a
better choice.

I do want to make sure that the precaution is taken that for each instance
where this is used, neither of them is a wrong choice. In other words, even
if there is an OK button, pressing ENTER should have the same effect as
clicking OK.
