The only problem with this is that many people don't have access to
PostScript printers (and a fair percentage don't even know what PostScript
is). I have two client companies right now that don't have
PostScript (which I found out after .EPS graphics didn't print), and my
contacts at both companies gave me blank looks when I suggested that doing
manuals in PostScript would ease the
process with the printers.
