Severely compromising functionality

A cute style guide for technical writers. After brief lessons in style, grammar, and technical terms, it attempts (only partly successfully) to put the principles illustrated into practice by providing a version of the well-known tale of "Little Red Riding Hood" as it would be written by a technical writer. It starts a little slow (assigning acronyms to Little Red Riding Hood and Old Gray Wolf, among others), but gets better. Sample sentence: "Upon the dissemination of information related to the pending closure of the Task Order assigned to LRRH, OGW engaged in an enterprise-wide analysis of situational readiness."
