I tend to, too, but sometimes plain screen captures are confusing--you
are not sure what you are supposed to be paying attention to if there
is a lot of stuff on the screen. It's nice if you can somehow highlight
the screen capture, or explicate it in the text so that you can tell
what you are supposed to be seeing.
