Other - seems we're operating under the Andrew Plato "we don't need no
stinkin style guide" concept. We're just cranking out the docs. I'm sure a
style guide will come in time (it's a startup, after all), but for now,
we're winging it. Of course, as the sole permanent tech writer working on
business processes (we also have a perm in marcomm, but we haven't actually
worked together yet), I'm basically responsible for both determining and
applying style for our docs, so I suppose that's pretty liberating.

As a technical writer, I consider a consistently-applied
corporate style guide to be:

* Intolerably constraining
* Marginally constraining
* Neither constraining nor liberating
* Marginally liberating
* Extremely liberating
* Other/none of the above
