Mr Smith asks:

How do writers typically differentiate training documentation from user documentation....

Tony Markatos responds:

Such was the speaker's topic for our most recent STC meeting (Northeast Ohio Chapter). The speaker's answer: End-users read what Trainers create to gain knowledge [that stays with them]; end-users read the documenation that Technical Writers (outside of training) create to do a task once.

Obviously our speaker was a trainer. I disagreed with his assessment, but was the ONLY one - in a room full of Technical Writers - who did. I would be very curious as to what others on this listserv feel.
