Dave, you said something very interesting:

"I RARELY go to the manual for answers because
experience has shown that I end up wasting time trying
to find something that is not there or that is

I've often heard this from friends and business
associates. Heck, I've even watched technical writers
not use online help when they should have!

So the Big Question to all technical writers is, why
don't people read what we write? Are we at all
