Re the "Click" versus the "Click on" controversy:
I don't think users who have some experience with GUIs will wonder what
either means. So, I suggest you pick one and only one.
As for a recent comment about including a graphic instead of the button
label, I think that's extra work that doesn't add anything as long as the
name you mention is the one they find on the button. I would find it
especially time consuming because I sometimes document Windows software using
FrameMaker on my Mac. Capturing and transporting these images is difficult
enough to discourage its frequent use.
