My company just finished producing a style guide that is about 140 pages.
It is in FrameMaker. I have no problem uuencoding it and sending you the
I would fax it to you, but faxing a couple pages might not give a true
representation. Most of it (100 pages or so) is term definitions. About 40
pages of it is a discussion of our FrameMaker templates.
