Make the web site so bad that they can't find anything without reading
the help? is there for when they need help...the help is not the
reason they come to the site. Ideally, the web site is so well designed
that the help is not needed.

Anyone know of studies/articles that discuss how to get users to read
your help documentation?

I've written new user guides for various sections of a naval medical
website and am now trying to determine best practice/method to get our
user community to read them!
