The icon option (previously posted) is an excellent
choice and oft-used. Other options are:

Option 2:
IF the document is single-column, multi-column for
comparisons (functions, features, how to implement)

ppppppppp npnpnpnpnp
ppppppppp npnpnpnpnp

Option 3:
describe the PRO version then in the following para
(preferably with a slightly different appearance --
e.g. italics text) note the non-PRO exceptions;

The Whizbang and GeeWhiz features are available
only in the PRO version.

Graphics: Generally, you can follow Option 3 (above);
if not, be consistent and always put PRO over non-pro
(to match the 'exceptions' layout for text if you use
Option 3)

[Option 1 was the icon option refered in the
first graf.]
