Mark, the very best thing I know is the little Strunk and White _Elements
of Style_, now in its 15th+ edition -- 16th, maybe. It is invaluable in
situations like your correspondent described. It's short, simple, easy to
use, not fussy. No theory, just practical advice.

Second best: The _Texas Style Manual_ (approximate title), a tiny book,
used often by law reviews. Similar to above, a little fussier.

If others know of other resources, I would like to know about them.
