Estimating documentation is *hard work* - especially for a brand new
document for a product that has not been developed. JoAnn Hackos' book
is right - although IMHO, some tasks are more complex than others and
multiplying page count per task is risky - especially if you live and
die by your estimates. In this case it's better to analyze each task
in terms of pages - then make your estimate.

Good Luck!
