I am confused with the usage of the term "She/he" when referring a prementioned and undefined user. Below is a sentence found from MSDN magazine: "When the user decides to create a new customer, **she** must fill in the data entry form in Figure 2." I myself use the term "She/he" is this context, since without mentioning both can be regarded as gender discrimination, and placing 'she' before 'he' is respecting the ladies. So, can I just use 'She' in this context, that will save some typing.
