I'm tempted to answer:

Yes! Try *.txt

You do not mention the system configurations of your users. If they are in
Windows, then you might try WinHelp. If you do a simple structure, you
could use RoboHelp (or Doc-2-Help) to create concurrent HTML and WinHelp

If you are extending the documentation to other platforms, then there is no
way to make sure your readers have the installed base to read any format
(other than text) that you deliver. But, a good cross-platform hypertext
delivery system that you can use is Adobe Acrobat. It allows you to
dynamically link pages of information, retains fancy formatting on screen
and in print, and reproduces VERY well. Also, if you are using the latest
version, several web browsers allow you to view Acrobat documents straight
from the browser without requiring any download.

Because it seems so common here, and in case you may have thought
otherwise, my opinions are mine and mine alone, Don't blame Ulead for what
I said.
