<<DESCRIPTION OF OUR KNOWLEDGE BASE:
> Our knowledge base (kb) is a collection of documents>>
In a previous job, 3 or 4 years ago, we provided users with a similar
database of documents, not for user support, but for a different
purpose. Users did full-text searches of hundreds of
megs of documents to find information they needed. We used a product
called TOPIC, published by Verity, and I was the DBA. The documents
were stored as text or Word documents and could be accessed by TOPIC in
