I take this as every industry that you may be writing about has its
standards. If you are writing for a stock brokerage copmpany, you ned
to know something about the SEC requirements. If it is about SOX, you
need to know something about accounting, if it is for a Microsoft
environment, knowing something about .net or sql might be beneficial,
depending on the subject.
