>Generously Written On Behalf Of Chris Orr:

>I am trying to come up with a good name for the type of documentation I
>have been working on lately, but I'm not getting very far. Here's a
>of it.

>Where our release documentation has a narrow focus on specific products,
>this documentation has a wide focus on tasks or processes that span
>multiple products. It is published independently of product releases, to
>the company
>knowledgebase and/or online magazine. There is a possibility it could be
>published in trade magazines. This type of documentation is heavily
>informed by research into best practices, standards, the existing market,
>feedback from consultants in the field, and such.

>Our manager calls this documentation "best practices," but it's more than
>that. What would you call it?
