It might not be the usual thing to have on opening balance in a "Salary" account, but if one did, this is what I tried in

transfer: Equity:Opening Balances
Subsequent entries could look similar:
transfer: Assets:Current Assets:Checking Account
What confuses me is when to "use"
income. What do they mean? Who and/or which account is charged?
(consider this question draft-stage; I'll be happy to polish it up once I understand more.)
