I haven't been following the entire thread, so I apologize if someone
else has posted this information.
Richard Yanowitz mentioned that the National Writers Union has conducted
research and workshops on repetitive stress injuries. To this
information I would add a recommendation to read the book "Zap! How Your
Computer Can Hurt You" by Don Sellers and Stephen F. Roth. The ISBN is
1566090210. The book is a great source of information on preventing
RSIs. As a bonus, it's also beautifully designed.
