I would suggest that you first find out if your new company has established
style standards
for publications. I would also ask your mgr, or the person that you report to
for guidelines
before you as a "newbie" push our great ideas upon them. If you are a writer in
a void, you're
gonna get lots of "guidance" from this list. My suggestion is to keep it
simple, and within
the constraints of your tools, also think about reuse before you employ some
hard and fast
