Chris,

Thanks for updating your list.

When you get around to updating this list again, consider adding this info
to your present list:

Under TECHNICAL WRITING BOOKS AND REFERENCE SOURCES

Charles Sides' book _How to Write and Present Technical Info_ has a 2nd ed.,
1991, and its ISBN is 0-89774-627-9.

Brooks and Pinson's _Working with Words_ has a spiral bound 2nd ed., 1993,
ISBN 0-312-06662-7.

Also, consider adding these to your list:

Under BOOK DESIGN/TYPOGRAPHY

The Desktop Style Guide by James Felici (New York: Bantam, 1991). $11.95
paperback. ISBN: 0-553-35445-0. (I know is says style, but it's still a
good general reference book on typography).

Under EDITING

Technical Editing by Carolyn D. Rude (Belmont, CA: Wadsworth, 1991).
ISBN: 0-534-15000-4.

Good luck.

Hal
