Tim said that all documentation was a matter of trade-off and I can see
his
point of view but it brings me back to a question I asked earlier in the
debate
(may have got lost in the heat!). When creating help and docs from a
single
source what's the trade-off? I've used the same information in manuals
and help
but NEVER the same words - I've always had to re-jig them to a greater
or lesser
degree simply because of the style. To keep them exactly the same
(really
single source?) I would find that either the help wasn't as short and
sharp as I
feel it should be or the manual would be very stilted. Is the is the
trade-off
in this case?
