Project Standards

In order for your modular project to mesh seamlessly, it's important that all the components adhere to a set of standards. Among the things you should consider standardizing are:

      Which templates or cascading style sheets your documents and help files are based on

      Which styles are used, for what, and how

      Style customizations

      Typographical conventions

      Help window designs and usage


      Frequency and type of hypertext jumps

      Use of graphics

      Tone and style of writing

You should also ensure that, if you are using a centralized glossary, authors do not attempt to add terms to their local glossary, but instead place their terms in the central glossary.
