Like Eric said in his reply: "A screen shot is worth a 1000 words" 
especially for people that don't use English as their native language.

Yes, I do consider myself to be very lucky, because I do 
speak/read/write: French, German, Dutch and a fair bit of Spanish, Latin 
and Greek for a second year college student.

You can catch the active window (with or without the title area) or just 
a specific area that needs the readers attention.

Lucky you, and now I wonder if you have a project at mozdev.org because 
people might want to look at it *before* they install in.
