I agree with you completely, Dick. Storing the documents in a database is an
excellent idea and, as you point out, relatively simple to implement. And,
especially for marketing documents, the ability to search based on keywords
in the document titles could be quite beneficial.

Suzanne, whose first technical writing job was with IBM working on DB2 and
still believes that relational databases are very, very good things.
