Subject:Conclusion: appears vs is displayed From:"Robin M. Allen" <robin -dot- m -dot- allen -at- WORLDNET -dot- ATT -dot- NET> Date:Tue, 25 Mar 1997 14:49:52 -0600
Thank you all for responding to my question about appears vs is
displayed. It *appears* that the concensus is "appears."
There was only one vote -- in addition to mine -- for "is displayed."
And I recieved a couple of suggestions for the more active "Click Add to
display the Add Patient window." I don't use that construction because
it doesn't always work.
Alas I will have to give in to the "appears" camp.
Thanks again for your help.
