Thank you, Stuart!

I actually have that book on my shelf (2e).

I'm not sure when I'll get to that (mountains of research on minimalism
so far!), but when I do, I'll be sure to let you know what I find.
Maybe I'll take a quick look just to check.

And I appreciate the Google search tip -- I only wish I had time to
learn more about these things. That will help immensely.

That's what I like about a mailing list like this: we all have our
unique configuration of skills.

Thank you again.

Best wishes,

Steve

I wonder if minimalism has been absorbed into newer fields such as the
information typing part of DITA. Steve, if you can find a copy of
Developing Quality Technical Information, by Gretchen Hargis et al, I'd
be interested to hear how much overlap you find with minimalist
principles.

> I've been searching through the Techwr-l archives, month by month, and
I'm back to late 2002.

Apologies if I'm teaching you to suck eggs, but did you know you can
Google the techwr-l archives directly? Googling for:

minimalism site:techwr-l.com/archives

... yields 274 hits, ranging from a 1994 discussion to the current
thread.
