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, a tech writing student, have been following the discussion on indexing
with much . . . fear! I've only done it once on a project and simply did
what Word told me to do: QED.
But I was wondering about a technique I saw and liked in the Michel/Coleman
*The Best Mac Tips Ever* manual. They simply number each section and the
hey with page numbers. The reference numbers ran consecutively through the
book from Idea #1 through Idea #376.
I realize this is too simplistic for many applications -- but couldn't the
theory be applied?
I'd like to benefit from your experiences before I hit the job market
myself (tee hee!).
