Cassandra,

You are welcome to look at my template, but first, a question: What
KIND of user manual, and for what kind of product? It can make a BIG
difference.

A computer software user manual may differ a lot in format from a
computer hardware manual. Further, user manuals for unix systems are
often formatted differently than manuals for pc systems, and mac manuals
are oftern different than both of those. And they'd all be a LOT
different than a user manual for a washing machine or other home
appliance. Same for cars, etc. And then there are mil-spec manuals,
etc. etc. Well, you get the idea.
