>I am concerned about whether this method of presentation satisfies Success

>I'm afraid if I add the month/year onto the link label it will add a lot of visual

>However, if it is better for me to add the month/year to the link label, would
>it be better at the front of the label or at the end?

>Thank you for opinions.
