Tom Green asks:
So, I am wondering if there IS a difference between a
style guide and a communcations handbook, or are they the same animal?
Any good thoughts on this?

I would assume they are the same animal. I mean, all a style guide is is a collection of standards your company uses in its documents. If that's what your "communication handbook" does, then it's the same thing. Sounds like the name was picked to make it sound important, which would make sense if it was created by someone who feels easily threatened.
