In reply to Kelli Martin, re: Tutorial vs. User Guide

I recently read an interesting book about designing minimal manuals and
instruction materials:

The Nurnberg Funnel: Designing Minimalist Instruction for Practical Computer
Skill, John M. Carroll, 1990 MIT Press ISBN 0-262-03163-9
It is *perhaps* a little radical for some old hands, but it gets the juices

As a person who hates writing glossary entries, I refrain from trying to define
user manual vs. tutorial.

It would be an interesting discussion (for another day :-)) to talk about
minimalist manuals...
