I don't know what the HIGs recommend, exactly, but here we go:


Thunderbird [Don't Save] ... [Cancel][Save]
Gimp2 [Cancel][Discard Changes]
OO.o Writer [Save][Discard][Cancel]
KWord [Save][Discard][Cancel]
InkScape [Close without saving][Cancel][Save]
FontForge (formerly pfaEdit) [Save][Don't Save][Cancel]
Scribus [Save Now][Cancel][Close Anyway]

_Mac OS_X_Software_
TextEdit [Don't Save] ... [Cancel][Save]
Cenon [Don't Save] ... [Cancel][Save]
Mail [Don't Save] ... [Cancel][Save]
Pages [Don't Save] ... [Cancel][Save]
RPGMapMaker [Don't Save] ... [Cancel][OK]

WordPad [Yes][No][Cancel] - dialog asks "Save Changes to Document?"
msPaint [Yes][No][Cancel] - dialog asks "Save Changes to Document?"
AutoREALM [Yes][No][Cancel] - dialog asks "Save Current Map? Changes 
include: (list)"
MapX (don't know .... WINE crashed trying to run this)

Of all of these, Scribus and RPGMapMaker are the most confusing 
(RPGMapMaker obviously does not comply with Apple's HIG) but I don't 
consider them ambiguous in any way. While the dialog could be made more 
clear, it does not exactly require the input of any real thought to make 
a logical choice.

Faster than a speeding slug!
