I am wondering what people think of single sourcing.

I am on the fence about it -- leaning heavily towards not yet convinced that
it "works" for all documentation types. For example, I don't like the idea
of converting my hardcopy user guide into an identical online version. I
feel that online documentation (Help, etc.) is used and learned differently
(from the user perspective) than it's hardcopy counterparts.
