Has anyone seen an example of single-sourcing that is *good*? I've
seen examples (such as the manual for RoboHELP 3.0...the last release
before RoboHELP 95), but none of them have been *good* documents. I think
that, in theory, single-sourcing is wonderful, but in execution, its
inherent problems are pretty obvious.
