Subject:What if the marketing head... From:"Nancy Mignone" <n_mignone -at- hotmail -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Tue, 30 Oct 2001 13:42:49 -0700
Say I am a technical writer for a (now) small company. I get a dictum from
the head of marketing which reads (very prettily):
This sheet of paper then goes on to tell the company what colors to use for
Rules, Data, References, Processes, Miscellaneous, External References (in
R,G,B values with example of color).
So, I'm thinking, well, our product has rules, data, processes...
What does this mean? Whenever I write an example of a rule the software
executes, I write it in a particular shade of red?
Are there, or could there be, any standards out there about how to document
Processes? Rules? Data?
We automate processes by using rules for data. That's us.
No, I'm not asking me to send me your style guides and so on and so forth.
