My apologies for asking a previouslyr-asked question, but for the life of
I can't find the answer in the archives or the FAQ. Someone once named a
good style guide to use when writing user manuals for Microsoft Windows
applications. Perhaps it was a publication from Microsoft itself. I
need it at the time, but now I do! I want to make sure that I refer to
things the same way that Microsoft does. Please respond to me directly.
