In my present contract, I have a clause saying that I can use samples
of the work I do in my portfolio, so long as the samples don't include
internal documents, such as style sheets and programming specs.

Probably, I was being over-cautious, since I doubt that anyone would
object to the showing of published manuals. However, the work I'm doing
belongs to the company, so technically I do need the permission. By
getting it into the agreement, I keep everything courteous and honest at
the same time that I get the samples that (at this early stage of my
career) I badly need.
