Hi all

On Amazon it states that the most recent version of this guide, 3rd
edition is 2003? Did I read this right?

If so, can anyone recommend a similar guide that is more recent? I
looked through Amazon's suggestions and none seemed appropriate - that
were recent. One seemed good but its most recent date was 1997.

I am updating the Style Guide and I felt sure Microsoft would have come
up with something more recent. But 5 years is a bit dated.

BTW - I flipped through the 2nd edition and could not find "login" as
one of the terms. It is not in there at all.
