Well, that's amusing. I just checked out this site and lo and behold,
the variation of IM I've been using for years looks a lot more like
DocuTools than it does like the IM samples on the IM web site. It works
just fine for me, and makes clients/employers glad.
The only trouble is when the think you can just "pour" the text from the
old manual into the new format without re-writing it, and base the
deadline on that notion. Sigh, Back to work!
