TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I have a question about the use of trademark and registered trademark
symbols in scientific text. There are two schools of thought here, and the
discussions are getting quite lively. One thinks that you only put in the
symbol when talking about a product (Microsoft® Word) another thinks that
you put it in whenever you see the name (Microsoft®). We have looked in the
Government Printing Office Style Manual and it does not say anything about
it. The GPO is our mainstay because we are contractors to NASA and must
comply, but in this instance information from any source would help.
