Hi John,

If I understand you correctly, there's a basic description that
applies to all products, and each product is differentiated by
relatively small amounts of info. If that's the case, using italics,
color, etc. would defeat the whole purpose of hypertext. One of
the nicest things about hypertext is it helps you avoid repeating

Is it possible to put all the common information into one topic,
with a list of jumps or popups at the end linked to the specific
information about each product? In addition to saving you a lot
of work, this would also be easier for readers to understand --
the information common to all products would be obvious.

Hope this helps.
