Coincidentally, I looked at an Envoy file only yesterday. A friend was
raving about WordPerfect's on-line manual. I routinely make on-line PDF
manuals from FrameMaker and was curious about what tool Corel
WordPerfect was using.

The differences I could see in the brief look I had was that PDF has the
advantages of:

- a Bookmark window to jump into the document;
- hot-links to cross-references

The only links I could find in the Envoy manual was from the TOC.
Perhaps others are optional.
