    I think that this advice is very good in most all writing and it is a key to keeping your readers attuned to what you want to impart to them. I hate to write documentation because I always feel like I am talking down to my reader, but I don't want to assume too much of there reader. It could be alleviated by clearly stating whom the reader is that I have in my mind. Thank you for your post Merlyn.
