TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
While there's no doubt info on this in the archives, here is the short form:
* Do not use the Master Document function.
* Use the "RD" (referenced document) field instead. Build a TOC and Index
* As for chapter numbering, we use macros and templates provided by the
smartest people on the Mediterrenean seaboard, Tech-tav. You can learn more
about them at www.tech-tav.com.
