I am not sure whether I have asked this question before.Yet seeing a
recent question about proofing hardcopy manuals made me think of a
question close to my heart now:

What methods and techniques do you use to proofread windows help
projects so ensuring that your project is error free and grammatically
correct before handing it off ?

Any suggestions?

PS: On a subject not related to the above, I am starting to writing a
book about online documentation. I am in the plannig and research phase.
Whay I would to know is:
After I have produced my outline/book plan, who are the publishers to
contact who handle technical publications on topics in technical writing?

Although I am Australia based, through the Internet I can easily
deal with International Publishers.
Do you have an contact name and email address that I can contact?
What else do I need to provide them?
What pitfalls do I need to carefull of?
Are there any contractual issues that I must be carefull of?

If any of you have good suggestions I would appreciate it. As I develop
the outline of the manual, I might post some of my ideas for your

Thanks in advance.
