Shrug.  I don't much care what other formats are available, as long as
plain text is.

Agreed.  When I have to use HTML, having to chase links all the time
irritates me too (beyond having to use HTML at all, that is).

If they're not reasonably cheap they might as well not exist as far as
my documentation reading preferences go. :-)

Is that the "soft paper" stuff?  That's a nice idea, but until it's
cheap enough to build multi-hundred-page books out of, it won't replace
paper for me.
