Hello All -

I actually like what David came up with but have put some words around his
original to see if itıll work for all concerned.  One thing, itıs not the
information that is required but rather the ³actual² forms, fields or other
entry mechanisms that are required.  Users need to know in advance what is
required of them for successful input completion.

³Information that is required for the successful completion of the
interaction is clearly identified.²

I propose the following:

³Forms, fields or other user input mechanisms that are required for the
successful completion of the interaction are clearly identified.²

Does this get to Greggıs issue and still convey what we want to say?  And, I
agree ­ this is something everyone needs but I think itıs helpful just th
esame.
