At the chapter meeting tonight, the subject arose of international style
guides. I'm not really talking about something like Microsoft's guide, which
is basically intended to smooth translations, but something much more
complete, like a Chicago Manual of Style for overseas use, that would have
such things as international editing symbols, printer conventions, and
typical culturally-based preferences for numbering sequences and similar
things. Does anybody know of such an ambitious work?
