Great presentation. Does this pre- or post-date Scott's "Embedded User
Assistance for Web-based Applications"? I've forwarded that one on to
numerous colleagues.

Honestly, I haven't thought of a manual as a "separate" thing since I
was at Scott DeLoach's presentation at WinWriters 2007
(http://www.clickstart.net/presentations/embeddedua_writersua07.pdf)

With embedded UA, the user probably doesn't even know they are getting
the help they need.
