Perhaps I've yet to overcome my naivete, but I don't think this is the
best notation.  The "context click" notation assumes that the user
already knows what a context menu is, and which button they should
click on the get it.  It seems that this should be one of the main
goals of at least an introductory document.  It also doesn't "scale
up" to other uses -- for instance, you wouldn't write "...resize the
window by dragging the window border with the context click button."

Sorry to be the consensus-buster, but I still prefer the button-1,2,3
