I heartily agree. My last two major user manuals have been delivered as PDF
(for client printing) and HTML Help for on-line use. By adapting SAT (System
Approach to Training) methods, I have been able to develop manuals that are
highly granular and equally happy as printed documents or online help. This
careful approach to document organization is, IMHO, the only way to achieve
