"B> I resent being described as "entrenched" when every employer I've ever
worked for has insisted on a particular style... some moreso than others.
The material I'm writing now, while perfectly adapted to the market for
which it is intended, would bore the pants off anyone else."
This I understand quite well. My "boss," who didn't even know what STC was,
and may not know this lserv (maybe), has a "style" that is a bit out of
date too. Foretunately, I'm not stuck with that, and the last manual I've
created uses a bit more modern approach of modular.
Modular design is working out quite well for me...and converting this to
online will prove easier I suspect.
Anyone else experimenting (or seasoned) with this approach?
