Having problems with inconsistently written documentation? Do your user manuals need some help themselves? If so, then you need a style guide for your technical writing team. We’re not talking about what they should wear, but how they should write.

Content couturier Keith Schengili-Roberts (IXIASOFT) talks about what they are, why you need them and how to use them effectively. While not exclusively focusing on DITA, Keith will also talk about why a style guide is a necessity for any team working with DITA.
