Re: [BULK] Re: Use of word "reference" when cross referencing
I like Gene's idea here. Our mainframe docs have had this use of "reference" for a very long time, usually when citing IBM documentation that we don't directly link to. It still jars me when I read it. If I'm editing some section for another reason, I will often change 'reference' to 'see,' but only if it makes sense.
