forgive me if I am using incorrect terms. I have been stuck with print
manuals and a huge online help project for way too long. I feel like I am

Anyway, my manager mentioned something about MSDN compliance, but these
things are most important. Also, just in case it matters, we will be using
Perforce (don't know much about this either) to check the files in and out.
