The 1988-1989 edition of the "Occupational Outlook Handbook" states:
"Technical writers put scientific and technical information into readily
understandable language. They prepare manuals, catalogs, parts lists, and
instructional materials used by sales representatives to sell a wide variety
of machinery and equipment and by technicians to install, maintain, and
service it (U.S . Dept. of Labor 186)."
As a technical writer yourself, do you think this statement is true and
