John Prince asked about placing the trademark symbol after every instance
of the trademarked name.

Well, at this company, the company name is registered and we do not
place a (R) after every instance of the company name. I also looked
at the Microsoft Manual of Style just to see what those crazy legal
beagles at Microsoft did. Guess what? They don't put (R) after
every instance of Microsoft. And if you look on page 238, they explain
why.

If you look at the Adobe Photoshop 4.0 User Guide, you will discover
that neither Adobe or Photoshop have the (R) after them within text.
Both Adobe and Photoshop are registered trademarks.

So, I think that John is correct in his opinion that using the (R)
(or TM) after every occurence of the subject term is not necessary.

While the above opinion does not represent the position of the company
I work for, it should.
