Thank you all for your input. Fot this client the time/money apsect is a
bit odd. He thinks by reducing/removing as much text as possible he will
actually save money by having less instructions written. My way of trying
to get him to understand that this might be hard is to do a user survey and
see if they really like the animations better than the PDF.

However, what I'm mostly after are some kind of references to support these
claims about time and usability/readability. Anyone got links/resources
that supports any of these claims? I would like to have something else than
just "I think you are wrong", but rather "according to... this might be a
bad idea"..
