There was a discussion here a few years ago where somebody said he (I think it was a "he" and apologize if I remembered wrong) said that he had the British and American versions of the field manual for a piece of equipment. He made some comments about the types of content and the expectation each set of readers had. Dig around in the archives for the past few years.

style?



Is there any difference between British and American technical writing
styles? If so, what sort of difference?

avoid idiomatic phrases that the audience may feel awkward with, but besides
that, would the actual writing *style* be different?
