-> I would definitely _not_ do that. To me "PC card" means any card or
-> board that goes in a slot on an IBM-PC-compatible computer. If PCMCIA

Nevertheless, as of Windows 95, "PC card" is now the 'official' way to
refer to PCMCIA (People Can't Memorize Computer Industry Acronyms)
cards, for self-evident reasons <g>
