This is just my opinion; I'm not saying you shouldn't get legal dept
approval on any of this!
If Microsoft included the symbol as a Wingding, then they must expect it
to be used. Can you subscript a small "95" to the logo? That should get
across the idea that you're talking about Windows 95-specific procedures.

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