This is the page for discussion of the Wikipedia article Style guide, which covers the subject of style guides in general. Discussion of Wikipedia's own style guide does not belong here, but in Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style. Barnabypage 18:45, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

In January 2011 Eeepy14 proposed that List of style guides be merged into Style guide. No rationale was provided. Trevj (talk) 08:51, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose From what I can tell, they are distinct articles. No rationale is provided at present. Other editors have yet to comment. --Trevj (talk) 08:53, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose One is a list, the other should be about style guides in general. HTML2011 (talk) 19:18, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Fixed: Misplaced information about "Dr. D. Sundar Ram"[edit]

As of this post, there is some biographical data about a Dr. D. Sundar Ram inserted at the top of this wiki page. It doesn't fit with the article on style guides at all. However, I cannot see it on the edit page to remove it. (It does show up when viewing the page's source, of course. But, of course, I can't edit that directly!) I've copied and pasted the text from the article (below) to show where the text is.

Style guide

A style guide or style manual is a set of standards for the writing and design of documents, either for general use or for a specific publication, organization or field. The implementation of a style guide provides uniformity in style and formatting within a document and across multiple documents.

EDIT: Fixed. Since the text on the edit page didn't include the Dr. D. Sundar Ram information, and the preview didn't include the Dr. D. Sundar Ram information, I resubmitted that text as a new edit. I have no idea why the Dr. D. Sundar Ram information appeared or why I could not edit it. Here's a screenshot.
