Here's a legal question.

Our next release will be on Windows 95 as well as Windows 3.1, although the
software won't meet all the requirements to be called Windows 95
logo-compliant. Some new procedures will work only on Windows 95.

So, we need to put something in the margin in the manual to mark Windows
95-specific procedures. I suggested the Windows 95 Wingding that comes with
Windows 95. It's the last Wingding in the Symbol dialog in Word 7; Wingding
255. It's a rendering of the Microsoft flying window logo.

Some people at the company are afraid this is illegal or otherwise verboten
because the software is not Windows 95 logo-compliant. My guess is that it
is OK to use the logo in the manual in this way, but what do I know? We've
tried to ask Microsoft but have not been able to get through to anyone who
can or will tell us if it's OK.

Any ideas on this? OK or not OK? How can we find out?
