3.1 docs say same. For *nix, I would agree with your view of 'static', but perhaps MS uses a different terminology. Martin?

Or maybe the doc writer is using a local def of static simply as a terse, if potentially confusing, alternative to 'load-time linking'. But that could just be .lib linking versus .dll linking, which is crystal clear. Can you write an alternative paragraph or two that you think is better?
