FAQ QA

Here’s a snippet from an Adobe FAQ regarding the CS6 package. The web design lesson here is to make sure that the answers to questions answer the questions.

hero (masculine) or heroine (feminine) refers to people who, in the face of racism, classism, occupational hazard or from a position of poverty, display courage and the will for self sacrifice—that is, heroism—for the greater good of their community.
