What does everyone think about the Microsoft Manual of Style for windows
application documentation? I've been using it for some time, but wondered if
there might be a more comprehensive reference.

I do like the simplifications it suggests-- instead of typing
"dropdown","dropdown list","combo box" or "list box", you just say "box" or
"list."
