I don't see why anybody uses the Microsoft Style Guide anyway. I mean,
sure, if you think Microsoft's documentation is the bee's knees, then you'd
want to read the book to find out how they did it. But Microsoft's
documentation has been muddled and clueless from day 1. You'd be better off
starting from first principles than emulating them. At least your mistakes
would be honest and possibly ephemeral, instead of dull and institutional.
