Multiple banners on one page

If a page has both {{WikiProject Microsoft Windows}} and another banner that also includes WikiProject Computing, the Computing importance and class assessments must match.

Here's an example:

{{WikiProject Computing|class=C|importance=low|software=yes|software-importance=mid}}
{{WikiProject Microsoft Windows|class=C|importance=mid|computing-importance=low}}
{{WikiProject Telecommunications|class=C|importance=low}}

If the Computing importance or class do not match, the talk page will be placed in more than one Computing quality or Computing importance category, which causes problems with tracking tools including the WP 1.0 bot.
