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.
These days there commonly is no WP or DTP application. The source is
in HTML, DITA, Markdown, DocBook, or some other markup language, in a
content management or source control system, and transformed into a
variety of outputs.
No one who looks at many contemporary PDFs will be confused by the
title page being numbered 1.
