    42 Even slim fingers are big and capacitative touchscreens are very popular (probably more than resistive touchscreens), so try to avoid including very small surfaces or surfaces that have small margins to neighboring surfaces.
     42Capacitative touchscreens -operated with a finger instead of stylus- are very popular today (probably more than resistive touchscreens). Please '''try to avoid including very small surfaces or surfaces that have small margins to neighboring surfaces'''. This will maintain usability of your GUI on machines with capacitive touchscreens.
