I'm in the process of drafting a style manual for the company where I
contract and would like some help. I looked up references to both using the
copyright symbol (C) and the Trademark (TM) symbol. The Chicago Manual of
Style was definitive in explaining the use of both. However, either I
couldn't find references to the "Circle-R" (R) for Registered, or there
were none. Is the use of this symbol identical to the (TM), such that I
should use the symbol initially and then not in text (however, if there is
a graphic of the item, then use the symbol) with the usual disclaimer
either in parenthesis or footnote/end note, or must it be used with every

Thanks for any assist and if you have reference for this, would you please
let me know?
