As of this fall, there are new guidelines for writing military docs, and
there is a sub group of us out there. It actually depends what type of
military spec writing you do. Right now, the move is to ISO 12207
guidelines (intertwined with IEEE guidelines). SPAWAR has the official
announcement about cancellation of MIL STDs. Bottom line....it depends
on what venue you represent. Are you a contractor of gov. employee?
