The vendor has told us that it's more appropriate to
say "Press Search" rather than "Click Search" (referring to a button on
screen) for HTML help. Do you agree?

>>> I think you should tell him to go back to his typewriter and leave
you alone. I hate it when people design pages with "Press" this or
that. I don't like having to wipe the fingerprints off my screen!

(I use "click" or "double click" ...

>>> Um, that should be hyphenated. :o)
