    Re: How do YOU pronounce bezel

    Bezel that rhymes with bezzle, I don't think I've heard anyone actually saying that word out loud, though. Which means I don't know how it should be pronounced :-D

    Also, isn't the bezel:
    --> A groove or flange designed to hold a beveled edge, as of a watch crystal or a gem.

    I've heard "shroud" used before, and it does make more sense...
    --> Something that conceals, protects, or screens

    Just a thought

    Greetings All,

    I couldn't help but ask; doesn't that really depend on how you pronounce the other words?:-D How could we tell we are all making our choices along the same line.:-D :-D
