The text of the guide was written originally by Graham Greenleaf. This edition was produced with the assistance of Madeleine Davis.

The subject matter of this guide is to a large extent the internet searching, automated mark-up and indexing software written by Andrew Mowbray, Daniel Austin, Philip Chung, Geoffrey King, and other AustLII staff members and used by AustLII. It is also derived in parts from their user documentation for those programs.
