Why should we bother to predesign when we know that Microsoft is going to change the standard by next year? Seriously, I am burdened enough trying just to keep up with the HTML, SGML, RTF debate. Software documentation changes so fast that just keeping up with the tools is insane. This year I am being asked to convert everything into WinHelp and Acrobat. I am sure the industry will come up with something new next year. For me it's just another conversion.
