BIS actually has quite a nice documentation on their site: http://www.flashpoint1985.com/docs/briefing.html
Links in both posts are dead. any other link available to download the script editor?

One way to do your own briefings is to look at a mission that has one and then take their briefing ,
and edit it and then fill in the blanks with what you want it to read,
then try different stuff like deleting some thigns in it and see how it looks.
trial and error can give you an good idea.
