Subject:Web Distribution of Software Documentation From:Robin Griebel <rgriebel -at- IS -dot- ALLTEL -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 9 Nov 1995 14:54:31 -0600
Do any of you distribute software documentation (or even better, banking
software doc) from a Web site? If so, what are the advantages,
disadvantages, cost implications, and other considerations? A typical
application for my company may have 14 manuals and 7,000 pages so I don't
know whether Web distribution is a feasible alternative for us. Are you
familiar with any books, articles, or other particular resources that
I've been lurking on this list for three months or so and haven't seen this
topic addressed. But if it has been beat to death at some point in the
past, I would appreciate anyone who saved the postings to send them to me.
