Chicago Manual of Style (paragraph 7.125) says that the symbols need
not be used in running text. My experience in creating software
user manuals has been that you list products and trademark holders
in the front matter and, optionally, use the symbol the first time
the product is mentioned in text.

Hope this helps.
