For those of us of a certain age, Desktop Publishing has a quite specific 
meaning:  A desktop computer that could be used to publish books.  It then 
came to mean software that either did or could do that.

Please don't let's follow the modern trend of mis-using a term, however 
inadvertently, and thereby ensuring that the accuracy of our vocabulary takes 
another dive.

I know that I am a dinosaur, but I watch as the richness of the English 
language is dragged ever downwards by text-happy teenagers, and I could 
almost weep. :-(
