Wrong. The job description is for a "page layout operator." This is
clearly a skilled labor position and does not require technical writing
For crying out loud, it specifies a minimum WPM.

I found this post offensive.

>>years experiance. Must know how to create table of contents, templates,
>>tables, and index. Also cross referance, build books, reference
>>graphics from Adobe Illustrator. Reformat/intergrate documents and

>>words per minute.
