You walk in a room in which you know there is potentially lethal
equipment. Of course, you hit the first switch you find? I stay away
from any button/switch about something I don't understand. When I
first downloaded gwTeX, the i-installer asked me only one question:
Letterhead or A7. Since A7 was after my time, I hesitated a bit but
since I definitely knew what letterhead was and since I HAD to
respond, I went with letterhead, if with some trepidation.

Fortunately, 99% of what I write nowadays is in English but the
remaining 1% French is indeed a pain.
