One additional note, I just thought of after reading someone else's response...
At a biotech company I used to work at, we used three references to compile
our own style guide:
Sun Style Guide
Chicago Manual of Style
AMA Style Guide (that's American Medical Association)

The first was useful because we were documenting software and hardware
computer related stuff.
The second was useful for general grammar-type issues.
The third was useful for medical related questions.

You may be on the right track, but if you just sit there, you're bound to
get run over.
