Hi All,

Thanks for the sundry responses to my question regarding the difference
between choosing and selecting. The "Microsoft Publications Style Guide" says:

"In general, the user 'selects' or 'opens' menus and dialog box options and
'chooses' commands and command buttons."

Thanks again for your feedback, you're a great bunch-o-communicators.
