I disagree slightly with you there John. Providing the help as hidden text
is

1) extra baggage to be opened each time with the template.

2) extra baggage in new documents based on the template.

I prefer the hyperlink from the Help > About this template to the User
Guide.

My suggestions...don't make the instructions as a separate document,
but instead, include all instructions and style information as hidden
comments right within the document.
