Hello, WR-L-ers,

Any thoughts as to whether one form or another, for âinformation onâ or for âinformation aboutâ, as a lead-in to a list of related topics (not in DITA, so the automatic output for related links is not applicable) is best? And why?

Iâm looking for thoughts as to:
* âproperâ usage
* informal vs. formal
* potential ESL issues
* âtypicalâ style
* anything else?

Thanks so much,
-Monique
