Marc Santacroce reports using:

and Tom Little says his doc uses:
>> CAUTION This could produce unwanted results, or
damage data or equipment

>> WARNING This could cause personal injury
(or do severe damage to data or equipment?)

>> DANGER This could kill a human being or cause serious injury.

to previous menus)

NOTE Identifies preferred mode of operation
