MIL-STD-38784 – Standard Practice For Manuals, Technical: General Style And Format Requirements.

This is an US Defence standard covering the general style and format requirements for the preparation of standard technical manuals (TM).

In addition to “paper” delivery, this standard also provides for standard generalized markup language (SGML) document type definition (DTD) usage required for electronic data delivery.

There are a number of specific standards for particular aspects of documentation, each of which may have its own DTD, but all reference this core standard for the presentation of the content.

Mekon have produced a number of applications to support Mil-Spec and Mil-Std compliant documentation for our customers.
