Hi all,

I've just started a job writing proposals and absent an official style
guide I've been using Chicago. Is this well-suited for IT proposals,
or are there "better" styles guides? I'm looking for something that
not only covers punctuation, list formats, and abbreviations, but also
delineates the correct use of IT-specific terms. I may be asking for
two guides...
