John Cornellier wondered <<why does Microsoft not try to take a
bigger share of the tech doc market?>>

<Fe> Scary thought. Then we'd have books that crash and have to be
rebooted at least daily (generally more often), that aren't ready for
prime-time use until the third version, and that have to be updated by
downloading them from Microsoft's Web site in PDF format <stitch> and
printed on our desktop printers; worse yet, we might actually have to
buy third-party books on how to use Microsoft's books. On the plus
side, this would have positive side effects on Apple's market share in
the publishing market... </Fe>
