A little postscript on Bonn Graham's comment vis a vis using the
construction "press the X key/button".

_If_ you are using a Mac do yourself a favor and pick up a copy
of their KeyCap and Button fonts. These allow you to use a small
in-line image of a keyboard key (complete with appropriate lettering).

To my mind it's a very big advance in the presentation of user

As an aside, the documentation accompanying this product is quite
possibly the worst I've ever seen (written by a native English
speaker that is). I remonstrated at some length with the president
of Casady & Greene about this. It's truly horrible.

Anyway, you can probably find an add for the fonts in _Publish_
magazine or you can call Casady & Greene (they are in Monterey,
California 408 area code). It was less than $90 and is one of
the best investments I've made recently.

I produced my documents on this project using FM3.0.1 on the Mac.
However, I suspect the font will work well with most any page layout
program on the Mac.
