I charge the same rate whether clients want me to pester them with actual research, writing and testing or just quietly do formatting. It's their money, and they can spend it on whatever they want to.

I'm so glad we are talking about this topic because lately I have been disillusioned about my technical writing career and technical writing as a profession even though I love it.

I have also been told by a business analyst who wrote a quick and dirty version of the software instructions that "the document is already written, all you have to do is format it."
