Though many of us are turning toward online delivery of user information,
there is as yet no one universally accepted viewing engine. Lots have
popped up (no pun intended): Microsoft Windows HELP and Multimedia Viewer,
Interleaf WorldView, Digital Bookreader, Apple TeachText to name a few.

The recent dramatic growth of the Internet community and World-Wide Web
brings us another contender: Mosaic, the freeware Web browsing tool.
I've heard some suggestions that Mosaic is a good choice for online
document viewing. The idea is to write product documentation in (or
filter it into) HTML and then use Mosaic for display.

Does anyone have experience with this delivery method? Is it a sound idea?
Might it in fact be the future of user information?
