I completely agree with you; simpler is always better.

But if you make your case and its overruled, its probably best to just accept it.

Subject: Note styles

We currently use appropriate icons, indentation and a different background to indicate notes, tips and warnings in our help topics and pdf content. A proposal has been made that we also use autonumbering to add the word 'Note' 'Tip' etc.

I feel this is overkill, the icon in conjunction with the background colour act as a visual representation of that word so to add the word as well makes it almost tautological. The nature of the message should also be obvious from the text itself. I should add that we do not currently have an 'About this Help' topic that explains the icons and there is no desire to add one.

What are other people's opinions?

Am I crazy to be so bothered about this?
