The Chicago Manual of Style includes chapters relevant to publishers of books and journals. It is used widely by academic and some trade publishers, and editors and authors who are required by those publishers to follow it. In the 90s computer word processing and desktop publishing were becoming the norm, and the 14th edition of the Manual (1993) addressed more systematically the role of computers in writing, editing, and publishing. Expanded to 936 pages, it reflected significant changes in style, usage, and technology, and contained new and more extensive editing examples based on requests from editors, authors, indexers, and teachers of publishing courses. Sales of the 14th edition reached nearly half a million copies.
