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.
According to the "Writer's Guide to Style and Usage" (NY Public
Library/Harper Collins), "if the words following the colon form a complete
sentence, the first word following the colon is capitalized. If not, the
first word is lowercased."
