AnilaA -at- ibsplc -dot- com [mailto:AnilaA -at- ibsplc -dot- com] asked for Help on Procedure

"I am new to the field of Tech Writing. A graduate in English
literature, I have no background whatsoever in tech writing or in any of the
tools/technologies I see mentioned in most of the messages posted here --
except for MS Word, MS Excel and to a certain extent Framemaker

"I am in need of information on the following topics:
Writing User Manuals
Writing Online Help

"By this I mean the the language, style and format to be used in this kind
of procedure writing. My company does not require me to work with the
different help technologies as of yet. At present I am concerned basically
with the language part of it.

"Please do let me know where to go for this kind of information."
