>I'm not a lawyer, but here's what I think you should do. You should
identify the trademark with a symbol the first time you use it in the text.
You should also list the trademarks at an appropriate place early in the
manual, such as on the title page.

>Trademarks should always be used as adjectives. This respects the trademark
itself. In the specific case of "Microsoft," you should use "Microsoft
Corporation" if you are referring to the company itself, Microsoft Word if
you are referring to their DTP product, and so on.
