Some type of writing that says
        "Gnucash enforces the industry standard of double-entry
        accounting. You may have been using a package which works
        differently, and if you have been using X Y or Z we recommend
        that you read about double-entry accounting before you
        start." (Links to suitable sites)
This would be preferable to no information - and perhaps drop by one
third the number of queries here which have started with a
misunderstanding about accounting and blame the program.
