Very well stated Richard! I have a strong preference for printed
documentation. You can always carry it to the library and read it there.
I look at the monitor enough every work day. I gladly welcome the chance
to get away from it periodically.

+ complex) features, then I am willing and demand hardcopy

+ few pages to explain and requires jumps to other related
+ material, then I'd rather do it away from my monitor. That's
+ not because I'm using an amber screen either. I have a nice
+ hi-res monitor that displays help very nicely -- I just don't
+ like to read _pages_ worth of info on my monitor. JMHO.

+ Rich
