Oh, joy, what a fun assignment. In my experience, things go ok until you
send it out to review, and then EVERYBODY's an English major!! :).

Anyway, the "Communications Handbook" used here at Dowell tries to reach
about the same audiences yours does. It has the following sections.

*Legal Issues (covers use of company name and trademarks, as well as citing
other companys' trademarks)

*Publishing Protocol (covers several types of publications, including
technical papers, journal/magazine articles; brochures, pamphlets and press
releases; advertisements; and other documents)

*Company Logo (covers how it is properly used on various media)

*Document Design (covers packaging, page size, margins, white space,
typeface, tye size, column width, leading, justification, heads and subheads,
color, photos and artwork, and what they call "final touches")

*Document Organization (covers front matter, body, and back matter)

*Writing and Style (covers grammar, spelling, work choice and usage,
punctuation, capitalization, abbreviations, numbers, mathematics, lists in
text, text in visual aids, references, service marks, and a suggested reading

*Oral Presentations (covers preparation, delivery, and a suggested reading

*35-mm Slides (covers planning the design, preparing the text, using graphic
elements, applying color, numbering, and a suggested reading list)

*Overhead Transparenies (covers planning the design, preparing the text,
sample viewgraph with graphic, and sample viewgraph with text)

*Appendices (covers a full list of service marks, preferred spellings, unit
abbreviations, symbols, subscripts, and conversions)

It is NOT indexed, but I think it should be.

Hope this helps.
