Got to come to Dr. Gottfredson's defence on this one. I've read =
Horton's book, and I've been to Gottfredson's seminar. They talk =
different ways about the same ideas. However, at least in his book, =
Horton discusses a lot of theory. Gottfredson gives you bonafide tools =
and examples. =20

Bottom Line: I couldn't recommend Gottfredson's seminar any higher. If =
you are moving into or wanting to move into online document design, =
implementation, tool selection, etc., Gottfredson will give you the =
practical, real-world tested tools to get the job done. =20

I am affiliated with the St. Louis Chapter of the STC, but I am not =
affiliated in any way with either Gottfredson or Horton. Just a tech =
writer speaking his tiny little mind on the infobahn ;-)
