For a graduate student project for a military client, I am looking for
standardized format/layout guidelines in common use among producers of
technical maintenance manuals (excluding computer manuals). The client
is following the directive to reduce the number of specific format requirements
and bring them in line with commercial practice. However, they have
already studied 3 or 4 possible lstyle manuals and found they would require
too much modification to make adopting them worthwhile. The manuals concern
mainteance and use of army tanks, weapons systems, etc. They hope to get to
a standard which will permit one FOSI to serve several (even all) SGML
