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.
I recently (within the last 2 years) left an 11-year gig at AT&T Labs. The
Style Guide that we used was called the Multiweight Design and contained a
series of FrameMaker templates. The style guide is a proprietary document
described as the "official Documentation Architecture containing a set of
standards for the content and format of documentation intended for all
postsale, external-customer documents typically delivered with or in
support of a product or service."
There also was an AT&T EasyLink Documentation Style Guide that was
developed for Consumer Products projects
