Hi Kevin,
We do not use the term "etc." in our manuals simply due to the fact that
some of our users do not speak English as a first language. "Etc." isn't
necessarily a word that an international audience will understand. I've
seen it here before and someone will say it again: always consider your
audience when determining which terms to use. :-)
