Ideally, you probably also want to have the document indexed by a professional
indexer, the formatting done by a professional DTP, the organization analyzed
by a committee, the fonts chosen by city newspaper editors, the paper approved
by Xerox, the Department of Forestry and Greenpeace, and the binding carefully
examined by the Marshalls who run chain gangs (to keep the pieces together).

But for most of us Tech Writers, the sum of the whole is greater than the
sum of its parts. And we don't have unlimited budgets.
