I'm not familiar with "BUGS in Writing", but I do recommend the Microsoft
Manual Of Style. It's a good reference to use if you're not sure of which
terms to use to refer to certain hardware/software items (e.g., "What
should I use as the plural of 'mouse'?", "Does 'double-click' always need
the hyphen?", etc.

My company's goal is to conform as closely as possible to Microsoft
style standards, so that book is my bible.
