Do you write a separate database design document? Or include that details into technical specification?

What a good database design document should contains?

Thanks.

Every document should contain exactly what the reader needs to know. That sounds like a smart-ass answer, but seriously, why else would you write one? So, you first need to meet your readers and find out what they need. Are they newbies who need everything spelled out? Experts who know more than you and I ever will and just need broad hints? Or is the reader just yourself - you need a diagram to work out some ideas and keep them straight?
