Re: "either case" vs. "both cases" ?
Are you describing two cases or writing a procedure in which the usermuch choose one of two possible paths?
"In both cases, X happens."
"In either case, do X."
I'm describing two cases: "In both cases, X happens." And the consensus (my feeling, plus on-list and off-list replies) seems to be to go with "both" to reduce any possibility of confusion.
