TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Actually the books are by Robin Williams (not the commedian) and are
available in two flavors "The PC is not a typewriter" AND "The Mac is not a
typewriter". I know the PC one contains tips for how to do things in popular
PC Word Processors (and I assume the same holds for Mac). Since the
copyright is '92, some application tips are a little dated.
It has 19 sections, and is never far from my PC (it is my first line of
defense). Deals with hyphens, spaces after a sentence, Serif vs. sans-serif
and lots of non-controversial subjects <vbg>.
It's small and cheap (9.95).

That's "The MAC is Not a Typewriter," thank you. <g>
