"However, change occurs rapidly in the world of technology, and so do the ways we talk about technology," continues Whitmire. "Even expert editors need a set of vetted guidelines that keep them up to date and protect them from making the same decisions repeatedly or in isolation. This edition of the Microsoft Manual of Style is about standardizing, clarifying, and simplifying the creation of content by providing the latest usage guidelines that apply across the genres of technical communication—1,000 decisions you don't have to make again."
