Dear fellow technical writers,

A debate rages in our department over what to name some of our upcoming
manuals. I've searched the archives and couldn't find this issue, so here it
What should we call the end-user manual:

Users Guide
User's Guide
Users' Guide
User Guide

I couldn't find a standard anywhere, and we're at our wit's end. Well,
certainly toward our wit's end. Past the halfway point of our wit, at least.
Thanks. DB.
