There really is no such thing as a "tech writing industry."
Technical writing supports many different industries, and
most industries have their own standards (whether they
follow them or not is another matter). The first thing
you should do is look for published standards in whatever
industry you're working. Just reading this forum for a
while should demonstrate that there's nothing in tech
writing that enjoys universal acceptance from those who do
it for a living.

Other than the MS Manual of Style of Technical Publication, can anyone
recommend other resources for tech writing industry standards?

One more question, a new writer in our group (a former Motorola employee)
insists that Motorola is the trendsetter for tech writing industry
standards. Am I missing something or is this malarkey?
