"So here's my
advice to vendors looking to create better documentation. First, don't
have engineers
intimately familiar with your product develop documentation. They
understand it too well.
Second, make sure you test your documentation with target users
unfamiliar with your
product. Third, include lots of examples, even if they seem stupid and
trivial to you."

Have fun,
Chief Managing Director In Charge, Department of Redundancy Department
DNRC 224

In God we trust; all others must provide data.
Opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
