>>Engineering companies, in my experience, don't believe that having attained

legally responsible, and liable to be sued if something goes wrong.<<

Win has an interesting point ... if we go getting ourselves "certified," will
that increase liability? I know, I know, who ever suffered a liability suit
because of lousy documentation! But if the product was used in life-or-death
situations, such as the medical field, and the docs were wrong, and someone
died because of that ... I could picture some lawyer pouncing greedily.

But then, hey, this is Friday ...
