kavanaghmorse The Digital Style Guide is the official guide used by Digital and its third party partners to achieve consistency in text and on-line use information - and is the first such guide to deal with the special issues that arise in the creation of hardware and software computer documentation. It is especially useful for application developers and their support staffs - especially project managers, engineers, writers and editors responsible for the preparation of technical user information for products that will be used in Digital environments for Digital-supported multivendor environments.
