At my previous job (in PA), a "documentation specialist" was someone who
specialized in _documents themselves_ (i.e., their creation, formatting, and
maintenance) rather than their content. They are what used to be called a
"word processor", or, before that, a "typist"; but those were the days
before programmers became "software engineers", etc.). Writers concentrated
on the content. The documentation specialists were the only ones who were
hourly employees; the writers were salaried.
