I haven't found any alternatives. Which is why...

I agree that it sucks as a style guide, in the same sense that Wired as
a magazine sometimes sucks. It's the only 1990s-aware (that is,
technology-aware) style guide I knew of up to this point. Maybe Hakon
or Megan or Ari or Kristin or duck knows of a better one?
Better yet, maybe if I apologize to Ann she'll recommend one. Ann, I
completely apologize for blowing everything out of proportion and it was
100% my fault. Please talk to me again? Are there any decent style
guides for technical writing you can recommend?
One great grammar guide I like is Lyn Dupre's _Bugs in Writing_
but that is less of a style formatting guide than it is a grammar guide.

the best, I'm the worst. You're very good looking, I'm not very attractive.
Chubbs: All right. As long as you're willing to admit that now.
