Writing with a Computer also provides detailed discussions of locating, evaluating, and organizing information available on the Internet -- with an emphasis on the World Wide Web. Its primary goal is to explore how technology can support the range of composing and information gathering processes that writers use to create new documents.

Providing clear guidance on the strengths and weaknesses of modern word processors and operating systems, Writing with a Computer emphasizes how computers can help serve the needs of writers rather than placing that emphasis on software features.
