For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I refer to the steps inside a procedure (so a procedure would be "Making a Cake"
and step 1 might be "Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.") Task, I think, seems
to equate more with procedure, but for some reason "task" doesn't feel right to
me (maybe because too many people have said to me "I've been tasked with..."and
I HATE that expression).
