Subject:Re: Eric & Deborah Ray's HTML book From:Gurudutt Kamath <guruk -at- GIASBM01 -dot- VSNL -dot- NET -dot- IN> Date:Fri, 24 Oct 1997 13:39:55 -0500
It is not very clear (to me at least) whether the book is an award-winning
entry, an entry, or a book you found there.
When I came to know about this book some time back, I looked around for it
in India. I have even placed a request for it with the store. Looks like
I'll have to renew my efforts.
Also, in India, we hardly get to see award-winning manuals and books. If
the award winning authors/companies can send us (meaning Technical Writers
of India) these copies, it will be of help in our efforts. Will provide
mailing address, in case somebody takes the bait.
Incidentally, Peter Kent had promised a copy of his book with the bait of
reviewing his book.
Would be delighted to review such award winning manuals/books on India's
first site on technical writing. As a journalist and ex-columnist (on
Documentation), I may review them for some local publications also.
Now, back to searching for Eric and Deborah's HTML book.
