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.
>What that *means* is that, when you provide a toolbar, you should

And this has the result that the types who use the toolbar all the time
won't know about the facilities that have been hidden from them!
There was never any thing by the wit of man so well devised, or so sure
established, which in continuance of time hath not been corrupted. -- Book
