Hi! All,

I'm working on a Reference Manual/Integration Document for a software stack. Since this is the first time I'm working on a Reference Manual, I would be happy to get your feedback on both technical and information design aspects of such a document.
* Can anyone direct me to the sources where I can get samples of a reference manual
* What are the essential elements that needs to go into such a document?
* Are there any books that give information on the design aspects of a reference manual?

Working with MS-Word

How to create a table of contents and a cross reference index?
How to insert different headers and footers for different chapters?
How to create a different format for chapter pages without disturbing the overall document design?

Pls enlighten me on this.

Warm regards,

G.P. Vinaybabu
