Subject:screen sizes From:Sarah Lee <slee -at- ROSEBAY -dot- MATRA -dot- COM -dot- AU> Date:Tue, 21 Nov 1995 10:38:00 +1100
I am relatively new to technical writing. I have a question
concerning screen sizes for online help. At present, the
online help screens for the applications I write for, are
mostly of the one size - full screen.
I am wondering if it is really better to have all screens one
size or to have different size screens, depending on the
such things as content or logical structure.
Also, can anyone suggest any good books/articles on this
