Finessing the Style Sheet

About Finessing the Style Sheet

What exactly is the style sheet? What are the basics and what are the variables? How does it change from one genre of editing to another, from one client to another? And how is it NOT the same as a style guide? We’ll look at different style sheets presented by a small group of editors, and we’ll look at yours, too, if you’d like to bring one along. There should be plenty of time for questions and discussion following the presentations.
