HI -

I need to create a hierarchy of acceptance to used to describe and help
analyze results in our software in a 'scoreboard' type display. I need
four levels - very simple, one word descriptors. Each level has a
corresponding color icon (can be user-defined).

This is what I have come up with so far, but wonder if I can do better:

Green - Result range A = Ideal [best that can be

Yellow - Result range B = Acceptable [good, but could
possibly be improved, depending on a variety of factors]

Orange - Result range C = Caution [way less than ideal,
user should seriously consider changing the scenario to get better

Red - Result range D = Warning [bad results, do not

Note: Parenthetical statements not in the UI

Suggestions to improve? Really only need input on the names - I can't
change anything else. I only get daily-digest, so reply to my email too,
