The copyediting-l style FAQ is on the web at

http://www.rt66.com/~telp/sfindex.htm

It was quite a bit of work to create, but that's because we were
consolidating many posters' opinions into single essays, which were put
to the list for voting. Most FAQs are created by just going through
the archives, noting which questions keep coming up, and concocting
sensible answers to them. That sort of thing can be done over a
weekend.

Cheers, Tom.
