If you're finding that you want to reuse large chunks, you may want to
just provide copies of their guide as your main style guide. Then you
can publish as your company style guide only items that are specific to
your company or that contradict the MS guide.

Of course, I can't leave this topic without suggesting that you also
check out _Read Me First! A Style Guide for the Computer Industry_.
