Kevin:

Personally, your approach appeals to me. But I think you should also
consider Sun's approach, which (if I interpret Read Me First! correctly)
is to give NO special typographic treatment to GUI elements (or their
identifying labels).

When possible confusion exists between a label and the surrounding text,
you can set the label in title case (though it may not be set that way
in the GUI) or you can set it in double quotes.

Click Back, and then check the "Use the security key color" check box.

Click Back, and then check the Use the Security Key Color check box.
