Hi Gang,

I'm a bit confused by the recent messages about 'Style Guides'. The reason
for my confusion is that everybody seems to equate a 'style guide' with
something that is, to me, an 'EDITORIAL style guide'. Perhaps its my
typo/graphic background. Perhaps I spent too much time in my late teens
inhaling "Spray Mount" when pasting up copy ;-) When somebody mentions a
'style guide' to me, I instantly think of something the specifies how the
content should be typeset.

Regards from Luxembourg,
