IMHO, the savings come not from "freedom from having to format" your stuff,
but from information reusability, potentially lower translation costs, and
other "meta-stuff" not directly related to things writers fuss about.

To be clear, Bill Hall's original post enumerates these benefits and more. I
am emphasizing that he sees significant savings arising simply from avoiding

format hassles (especially MS Word format hassles).
