My point was that it doesn't matter. The considerations that have to go into planning, researching and authoring documents do not change with the targeted audience. And neither do the considerations that have to go into generating the kind of content that is going to convince those who determine the company's budget that you are worth spending money on. Unfortunately, there are far too many people in our field who don't get that, because I've seen far too many cases of really bad documents released because they were "only for internal use." And somehow, these always seem to end up migrating to external customers anyway.
