I have to agree with your co-worker. One of the basic rules of writing for
the web is to be brief. In my opinion, this situation is a good example of
the difference between documenting something on paper, and writing for the
web. Write the web page, especially non-vital technical information such as
this, so that it can be scanned as quickly as possible.
