    Re: is this sentence correct?

    Is this for your manual?

    I helped write a government manual some years ago. We were told that no sentences were to be over 10 words long.

    That's a very long sentence.

    Consider shorter instructions :


    Use this same process to:
    copy both the link's address and its name to another document
    or
    copy both username and password to log in..."

    it's for my blog...
    I was told sentences should not exceed 7 words :)

    you are right, I'll try to keep them shorter...
    thanks!
