Caroline asked "How do you distribute your documents?"

--
I author DITA XML and Docbook topics in an XML editor and output them
to PDF using XSL-FO and to Webhelp using Flare and XSLTProc. This is
for a cloud software company. The benefit for me is that I can pull
topics from a central pool and create my outputs using map files.

As far as how popular each format is, we get several hundred downloads
of each document every month and about 5000 page views in the Webhelp
every month.
