I've heard of it before, but it wasn't until a couple of minutes ago
that I took a peak at it on the Web. I found a good demonstration at

http://www.infomap.com/TIMER/showme.htm

where they contrast an info mapped doc and a non-infa mapped doc. The
contrast was impressive enough, but David's right when he says that
it's nothing new to tech writers. In fact, the demo was of a document
for which tech writers are rarely responsible. Now that I think of it,
it _apears_ that info mapping is merely the application of technical
writing methods to traditionally non-technical documents.

Is that accurate?

Mike
