Hello Colleagues,
Is it correct that we generally shouldn't use abbreviations like "e.g."
and "i.e." in order to avoid giving the user any extraneaous terms that
cause the reader to process more info than they must already?

And, if the answer to the above is yes, what is the correct punctuation
for the following sentence? (pls ignore the yucky wording of the example)

"Below admin.ini are the Group INI files which are named by the group,
for example, staff.grp and library.grp."

Thanks very much in advance,
Gillian
