I use this a lot, too. It's usually a hit with the users and the
client, both.

Another way I've solved the problem ties in to being a contractor -- I
find it EASIER to get credit in that situtation. I guess the theory is
that if the company paid for it obviously and directly, you must have
really done something worth crediting. I just include a little
statement on the copyright page: "User Guide and online help created by
Manual Labour."

I've never had a client who had a problem with that.
