Subject: Trademark usage
I have a question. I am working on documentation/courseware as it
relates to IBMs Java. Now, the previous person on this project has
the trademark symbol after EVERY instance of the word Java. Is
this necessary or can a blanket statement on the first page take
care of that?
many thanks, erin
