More on screen shots

With all of the discussions regarding pros and cons of inserting
"screen shots" into docs, no one has mentioned another obvious...

When writing about a Windows program, it is very easy to insert
simply an illustration of the dialog box (rather than a shot of the
*entire* screen). This is what I use, since most dialogs are not that

As far as the issue of sizing and all, *every* screen shot is sized
to 60% of original size. This provides consistency with font and
button sizes, and doesn't require the whole margin-to-margin portion
of the page (more white space, don't ya know!).
