Either STC or IEEE TRans. on Professional Communication had an
article within the past five years about the experiences of a
technical writer in Japan. Sorry I can't remember which -- I was
skimming both in the library the other day. Anyhow, it may not
be exactly what you have in mind, but I found it interesting.

One of the amusing stories the author told was of when a
co-worker, who was testing a document, asked her to read
something written in blue ink. She later found out that he
wanted to make sure that someone with blue eyes could, indeed,
read something written in blue ink. :-)
