...and you could do quite different things: At one customer who is planning a
software project with developement teams in four different cities we will do
"inhouse documentation". We will write check lists and forms for the

Forms not only means "design a sheet of paper to fill in", e.g.
to describe a window or message box. This will also mean at least organize
prototype windows the programmers are expected to use as often as possible,
build a glossary of all terms used in the unser interface and other things.

Greetings from Germany,

PS: My service provider rebuilt much of his equipment during the last weeks.
This meant that my UUCP connection more or less dried up. If you miss an
answer from me, please resend your message.
