Re: [Clip] ^!Delay question
- I agree with the examples part, BUT...
Haven't you experienced the warm and fuzzy feeling you get, when you
try to get help with "Open File" and you get context sensitive help
stating "Opens files"?!
Windows XP help has a 50:50 help -- 50% of the time it cannot find
what you need, and 50% of the time it doesn't explain what you want to
know in a meaningful way.
Whenever I get negative about NoteTab's help, I open a Microsoft help
file, and NoteTab's help SHINES by comparison.

- Yes, I am at least one of the culprits.
I didn't realize until a few days ago that this was a no-no and that it
caused problems on the Yahoo list.
I guess the proper way is to simply address a new email to the list.
My apologies to all.
