I don't like plain text documentation all that much.  My preference is
to have documentation in both html and Pdf format, one for reading on
the screen, the other for printing.  Of course LaTeX or Docbook make
that desire reasonably easy.

For HTML documentation, I prefer to at least have one chapter per page,
if not the entire document in one page.  Having to constantly go through
each little sub or subsub section as a seperate page irritates me to no

BTW, 200dpi displays have existed for awhile.  I don't know what it will
take for them to become affordable.  Also, does anyone remeber how many
DPI is in the eInk displays?
