Having a single set of docs online means that users accessing them are
always getting the most current version--even if they're running an
older version that works differently.

It also makes offline access and printing problematic.

There are times when a wiki is the best solution, but for core
documentation, I think single-source tools such as FrameMaker and
XMetal make more sense.
