Re: Definition of "User-Friendly" Was Re: Engineering design practice
User friendly documentation is, in the main,
documentation that minimizes the reader having to do
skips and jump-to's. There is really
only one approach to creating such documentation:
Design highly cohesive and loosely coupled modules
of information. And creation of such modules requires
good engineering design practice.
