Such a list *does* exist. It was put together by my friend Gary Smith,
the president of the New Orleans chapter of STC. Some techwr-l folks
contributed to it about a year ago.

If you would like a copy of the list, write to Gary by snail mail.
(He isn't wired, as they say.)

I believe Gary makes the list available to both employers and
job hunters.

BTW, after deliberation, he decided to leave out software titles
because such a list would be impossible to maintain.
