Subject: would you?
| 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
| saved before the program closes.
| She suggested:
| CopyWriter will prompt the user to save any edited, unsaved files before
| program closes.
| I just wanted to make sure that unsaved is proper in this context.
