I hope your second question on the MS dictionary won't wake up all the
lurking anti-Microsoft whirlers who'll flame the living daylights out of
you. The recent thread on the MS Manual of Style showed the deep and
irrational emotions the word Microsoft evokes in people, so if you are
looking for some serious advice, I'm afraid you have to avoid the M-word.
But for some serious hints, try these URLs, they've proven their worth to
me:
