As stated in the previous chapter, editors make three distinctive types of edits: content edits, stylistic edits, and form edits. Content edits address what documents say. These edits often affect large-scale decisions about documents, such as whether to accept them for publication, or whether the authors are headed in the appropriate directions. Stylistic edits address how the messages are delivered in documents. These edits focus on the structure, language, and illustration of documents. Finally, form edits address the appearances of documents. In other words, do the documents follow the accepted rules of grammar, punctuation, usage, spelling, and format?
