Any suggestions in the following area?

We currently have a corporate Standards Manual that defines the content and
format of the documents we produce. One of the major problems I have with
this document is the number of different paragraph tags combining different
fonts, sizes, justification, etc. It becomes too complex and looks terrible.

We are in the research & planning phase of completely redoing our product
(business application software) in a new technology. This gives us the
opportunity to develop documentation from scratch, including a new Standards

Does anyone have an opinion/rule of thumb regarding a maximum number of
paragraph tags/fonts to use in a document?

How about good design book recommendations?

Thanks in advance for any help.
