Does anyone else see the Dilbert-esque contradiction here? Tell the
people who were oh-so-concerned about what format the users preferred
that the users want to print, too. Run a web-based survey if necessary to
give them beans to count. Then perhaps they'll go away, and you can get
back to producing useful content for people who want it.
