I need to prepare a template for white papers for our company's software
I have not been able to get much info on the Net on this.
I'd appreciate any inputs on the following:
1. What does a white paper contain (in terms of headings)?
2. In what order?
3. Is there a recommended size?
4. Any guidelines on design, style, layout, fonts or formatting?
5. Any Do's or Don'ts?
