Hi, I'm new to this list and would like to know if anyone recommends the
recently mentioned Microsoft _Manual of Style for Technical Publications_
as a good resource to add to my library. I recall hearing somewhere else
that it suffers from inconsistency and/or inaccuracy and may not be worth
Also, I'm debating whether or not to spring the $40 for the most recent
edition of Chicago _Manual of Style_. My present copy is the 12th Edition.
Are there enough changes between editions to warrant buying the latest?
