We use "choose" for menu items, "select" for lists, and "click" for
buttons such as OK. And we instruct users to "type" rather than "enter"
text for the same reason that Scott gave: Enter is a key name. We also
include a small section in the preface explaining our GUI terminology.

"People are worried about online porn on the Internet. It's the endless
`Who's better--Kirk or Picard?' threads that *should* scare them."
