For anyone who'd like to see a style that's much like MMOS, but not
exactly, go to my website's Technical Writing Samples page and look at the
Artisoft manuals. I really found the style we used to be the best I've seen.
We dropped the standard MS approach to menu paths in a highly effective way,
I think, that worked great for everyone -- writers/users.
