Hmmm. I've been offline for a few days (not online, electronic or pdf
) and am catching up on some posts.
Tom, sorry, I did miss you point. The way I read it was that you were stating that it should be html based and that the PDF format was a lesser alternative but still good. Clearly from you replies, that was not your intent.
As for online vs. electronic version, a lot of "online" user manuals are PDFs. But I tend to agree "electronic" version might be more correct. But then again, is it really "electronic" since it doesn't have circuits?
Maybe it's merely a "PDF version"? But since this is no place for a "technocrat" discussion, then I supose it shouldn't be a place for "semantic" discussion either.
(just kidding, in my opinion, this is a fine place for both kinds of discussions)
