In writing a manual, a colleague suggested using the word "unsaved" for
talking about files that have not been saved. Is unsaved really a word. It
seems a little funny to me. I looked it up, and the word is for being
"saved" as in Christianity.

I had the following:

CopyWriter will prompt the user to save any edited files that have not been
saved before the program closes.

She suggested:

CopyWriter will prompt the user to save any edited, unsaved files before the
program closes.

I just wanted to make sure that unsaved is proper in this context.
