Elements of Style

Chritina Wodtke has written an article at Boxes and Arrows on using the writing reminders from seminal E.B White book 'The elements of style' (1959) in relation to user experience design.

It's a good article along similar 'checklist' lines as Web Dogma.

It's great to see something so simple (but important) such as the reminders from that book still highly relevant today and the practical ability to apply them to other areas.

Style should not just be considered an individual opinion/perception. It is vital that designers, writers and developers understand the needs of end users and their key objectives.
This obviously should be taken within the context of application in a business environment rather than an artistic or open creative forum where they should apply their skills whatever way they wish.
