While editing a manuscript, the copyeditor creates a style sheet listing the references relied upon (usually a specific dictionary and style manual) and the decisions made on spelling, punctuation, capitalization, hyphenation, presentation of dates and numbers, etc. For fictional works, the style sheet can also contain information about people, places, and the timeline. This style sheet is specific to the manuscript (or, in the case of a book series, the series of manuscripts) and can then be referred to by the author and the rest of the editorial and publishing team.
