I realized after I posted it that "security" can be used in a couple of
ways. I was thinking along the lines of the documentation being secure
from alteration: the customer can download it and print it, but cannot
alter the source files. This is our primary concern for our user
doc. Other books that contain system-level information will probably
never go on the Web precisely because of security concerns (more traditional
meaning used here).

Sorry if I confused anyone...but I'm on a deadline and tired as heck. :-)
