Dan,

Thanks for your comment. You're right. It does make me want to look for a
command button.

People have made some suggestions on the list, but none seem to work for me.
Even primary, middle, and secondary didn't make that much sense because of
OS/2's use of the right mouse button.

Button 1 and button 2 is logical. It may be what we end up using. But do you
think that left-handed people would object to the left button being button 1 if
it is not their primary button?

P.S. I love your signature. My kids love that book.

I realize that you would explain the names in a section up front. But maybe
"Click the Menu button" is less confusing.

When I see "Click the Menu button" I interpret this as place my pointer on the
"Menu" button on the screen and press the left-hand button on my mouse. Maybe
define the buttons as button 1 (left button) and button 2 (right button)?
