Style guides and standards for how to write manuals
Subject:Style guides and standards for how to write manuals From:"Peter Ring, PRC" <prc -at- PIP -dot- DKNET -dot- DK> Date:Tue, 4 Feb 1997 19:11:47 +1
This month tip-of-the-month on my website (see below) is on style
guides and other standards for how to write manuals. But I feel, that
there is a lot more useful information out there among you. I am for
instance missing information on millitary manual standards, FDA/WHO
standards for medical equipment, etc.
Please e-mail me, and I will include it. For important new info, I
will include your name as source (unless you write me not to!)
I will notify the list when this page has stabilized after
(hopefully) a lot of important information.
Greetings from Denmark
