I use a trademark for a product name only once in a document, after the
first occurrence of the name in the body text - but not in headings. For
manuals, I also include on the copyright page (usually following the title
page) an alphabetical list of trademarked product names referenced in the
manual, followed by the companies that own the trademarks. This page also
includes a copyright statement.

SunSoft Press, or the Microsoft "Manual of Style" for specific usage
