Waaaait a second, Rick. Are you trying to suggest that the government is a paragon of wisdom, choosing the right tool for the job and doing so in a cost-efficient manner?

It's 9/11 today, not 4/1, right?

Scott: Thou knowest not. I recently completed a gov't client's 1280 page
manual that had nine levels of headings, 3 different multiple level
numbering sequences, over 400 illustrations, 300+ tables, tabbed index, and
footnotes.
It had 6 different SMEs who all edited it during production (they had
limited skills to say the least).
I'm very familiar with the obstacles you mention -- that was in the past.
Today, in the right hands, Word can dance on the head of a pin.
