My rule of thumb on things like vice versa:

If I have to look it up to spell it or use it correctly,
I'm not going to expect my readers to know it either.

Your readers may be smarter than me and mine! ;-)

As a mentor told me over and over:
"When in doubt, rewrite."

Just violated my own rule - I looked up rewrite
to see if it had a hyphen in it. Double ;-)
