This book doesn't deal with "how you should write your ideas," but with your questions about style, capitalization, references in foreign languages, and so on.
For Spanish speakers: La mayoría de las reglas de este libro pueden ser fácilmente "traducidas" a nuestro idioma (excepto, por supuesto, aquellas acerca de comillas).
The book contains excellent advice on all aspects of scholarly writing. And there is not just advice on how to write, but on numerous ethical issues, like how much you can quote without marking it as a quotion, and can you cite references you haven't actually looked up yourself, and what do you have to put in a curriculum vitae.
She tells you how to properly cite every imaginable source: Corporate publications with no author, goverment documents, the US Constituion, the Bible, ancient documents found in museums, etc.
Styles have changed a bit since the 1st edition (the one I'm actually reporting on). In that edition she says you can't use use citations as nouns, as in "These results conflict with those reported in [Jones98]." However, this usage is very common. I don't know what the newer edition says on this issue.
