Booknews
Originally created for in-house use by Microsoft, the manual provides technical writers and editors with a style standard for technical documentation, including: use of terminology; conventions, procedure, and design treatments; and punctuation and grammar usage. The guide is arranged in alphabetical order with three appendices that specifically deal with acronyms, special characters, and words with numbers. A disk is included with the text which is an electronic version of the manual as a Windows 95 help file. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
