Just changed jobs and the first task I'm working on is quite technical
databook aimed at engineers with a general knowledge of the material.
Previously all docs have been produced by the engineers to varying
standards and what I've got at the moment is 70 pages, 2-column in
8-point Times New Roman - aaaaah!

Not what I'd personally choose for highly technical material so I'm
going to change it quick. My first thought is to go for a fairly
standard layout - headers in maybe Arial with the body text in something
like garamond with a nice wide margin to keep the character/line ratio

This seems like a fair mix for "techie" stuff - any/all other
suggestions welcome.
