Don't be concerned. Editing is editing. At the risk of over-simplifying, the
only differences between hardcopy and on-line editing are:

1. On-line, you may have a spelling and grammar checker. Use them, but don't
imagine that your editing is over, or even accurate, after you have.

2. Practically no one edits on-line reliably. If you want to edit reliably
and thoroughly, print it out.


While both of these are true there is also a difference between editing copy
written for on-line presentation vs. editing copy for paper. Although it
is true that the paring down of verbiage that makes for crisp on-line
presentation can also help paper documentation, I would still make a
distinction in that sense.
