Thanks. "Callout" works great, so I can state something like red callout
indicates this and point cursor on the callout to view the warning, a green
callout, etc.

Y'all get the drift. Dialogue bubble or dialogue balloon just wasn't getting
it for me!

thanks again!

Okay, you know how, for example, like in cartoons, when a character talks,
the words are contained in some kind of like balloon type object - anyway,
they are surrounded with a semi-oval shape border with a pointed end that
points to the character's mouth -



what on earth would you call that in documentation? Please no joke - I have
several of these to describe - different colored ones mean different things
and rather than writing the red
"thing-a-ma-jig/doodad/whatchyamacallit/doohickey" means this, I would like
to say the red <insert object name here> indicates that this is a warning,
the green < > means this has been processed, etc.



Thanks!
