Yes, I know.
It would be amusing, in fact, if I were not (1) having to base our style on
Microsoft, and (2) continuing to discover new internal contradictions and
ambiguities in their style manual. Sometimes I feel like Scribble the Cat,
whose repertoire of meows should really be expanded to match her adorable
visual antics. She's so cute! Scribble's the one thing I love about MS.
(Scribble is one of several alternatives to the evil Mr. Clip.)
