TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
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.
There's little in the literature of SGML that gives this grad student a
feeling for how the technology impacts the writing process--whether it gives
a "new freedom to focus on content rather than formatting" (what would that
feel like anyway?) or introduces new drudgery in the form of laborious
production tasks. Is this something that someone else does to your source
file after you've written it?
