I am shocked....nay, APPALLED at your posting and what it both contains and
misses.

In #10, when developing the style guide, you don't mention the imperative
and crucial step of figuring out which fonts to use for the guide itself
(not a list of which fonts to use when creating the doc, but the fonts for
the actual guide). Do you believe that a serif or sans serif font is best?
