>>How do you handle trademarks for other companies' products in your
documentation? Do you include the trademark or registered trademark
symbol in the text? Do you include a page that lists the trademarks
of all the products you mention and who owns them? Do you include a
blanket statement somewhere that says brand and product names are the
trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective owners and
leave it at that?

You probably should read the Chicago Manual of Style, chapter 1, to
see what it says about a copyright page -- especially the part about
it not being necessary, although most people do so anyway. I would
also check the manuals of leading software and hardware firms to look
for thoughts on how to handle one thing or another.
