About this title


This book is an easy-to-read, comprehensive writing guide specifically for information technology (IT) professionals and for technical writers within the field of IT. It offers methodologies for performing an audience analysis, working with subject matter experts, managing scope creep, and planning projects. It gives specific instruction for organizing information, creating outlines, estimating project time, and deciding what to write. It offers guidance on how to write executive summaries, processes, procedures, and indexes. This book offers a review of punctuation and grammar with easy-to-understand examples and without confusing linguistic terms. It gives numerous tips on writing style, and considerations for paper, online, or Web delivery. It offers basic instruction on format, white space, use of color and fonts, screen design, and hyperlink design. It explains the pros and cons of using SGML, HTML, XML, or WAP, how markup languages work, and it helps you decide which markup language would best meet your needs.

From the Publisher:

We were very pleased to publish this book, as we believe it fills a need in the IT field. This is the first writing book we have seen that is customized to the IT field, which employs over half of the technical writers in the world. It also addresses the immediate concerns of the IT professional (who is not a technical writer) and guides the professional through the writing process. Most technical writing books overwhelm the reader with unnecessary detail, or talk about grammar using language terms with which no one is familiar. This book is also a terrific guide for those numerous professionals who have English as a second language, and it is also being well received as a textbook. We know this book will be a very valuable reference for years to come!
