You could create a one page, 2-sided sheet showing a
typical layout with stylenames. i.e.:

_______________________________________________________
ChapName Page 1
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ChapterName

Heading1 Heading2
This is body text...you can include some
tutorial information here.

Figure 1: Happy Figure
<graphic>

Table A: Happy Table
<table>

This is more general information in body text.

IMPORTANT: If you have something important,
then use this style.


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
BookName - Month/Yr
______________________________________________________


If you can give them the basics on a single page, they will probably
make a halfway decent effort to follow it (esp. if it's company policy).
Any nit-picketyness could be handled in your style guide. If you
could get them to follow the basic flow, I think that you would be
in pretty good shape.

Have a nifty day,
