So far as I'm concerned, technical writing's essential rules are the same as
writing for a magazine, newspaper, or other publication:

1) Do your best.
2) The editor/boss is always right.
3) Know your audience and write to them.
4) If you think you know a better way, diplomatically discuss it with your
editor/boss. If at the end your editor/boss disagrees, refer to rule 2.

These rules are in order of importance. All other rules come after. Is
that so hard?
