Question: When using an acronym (as you all know, very prevalent in our
profession) preceded by an article, should you use the article that
agrees with the first word the acronym represents, or use the article
that agrees with the pronunciation of the acronym.

e.g.: an FTP
a FTP

a SS2000 (SiteScan 2000)
or an SS2000
