I don't think documenting the history in the document itself is a good
idea. I like to keep the distinction between the product (the document)
and the project (the work to create or revise the document) clear.

The project files should contain the history of revisions for internal

There are very few instances in my work where the reader needs or wants
to know anything about changes to the document.


Create HTML or Microsoft Word content and convert to Help file formats or
printed documentation. Features include support for Windows Vista & 2007
Microsoft Office, team authoring, plus more.

True single source, conditional content, PDF export, modular help.
Help & Manual is the most powerful authoring tool for technical
documentation. Boost your productivity!
