The problem is that many people who might write about acedb want to do so in
their favourite word processor and they (quite rightly) don't want to waste time
battling with html or anything else.

We should be clear about providing two sorts of docs:

	- those viewable online, where html/web based the clear favourite

	- printable docs which could be viewed via ghostscript, acrobat etc.
	  but can also be printed out.

I agree about your other points.
