    Joe – will this cover what to do when you have a Web app that can be accessed from a desktop/laptop, tablet, and phone? One Helpset with generic language (“select” instead of “click” or “tap”)? Multiple websites that automatically redirect Help calls to a device/screensize-specific Helpset with customized language/terminology?
