I wouldn't go near the IEEE or DoD documents (no offense intended) unless you
require them for government work.

Contact someone in your company who has written a functional spec and simply
use that as a model. Short of that, find someone you know in the software
industry and ask for a copy of the table of contents.

A good functional spec may contain:

*The purpose of the software
*The intended audience
*Every proposed screen in the program
*Briefly list every function, menu, field etc.
*Discuss network requirements (as appropriate)
*List License requirements

This is by no means meant to list every subject you should include, but it
should get you started.
