Many of the theories surrounding non-fiction texts have roots all the way back to the rhetoric of ancient Greece. At the same time, a persistent academic discussion has meant that the classic theories are still relevant and valid. Over the years, a number of other theories have also been launched, and not least modern computer tools have updated the topic. The natural question is whether the academic theories surrounding non-fiction texts also apply to technical documentation?
