I agree with this, also because of the easy hyperlink incorporation. I think
Latex converters can insert links. HTML is much nicer to print now, in IE 5
anyway. I believe PDF is much better alternative to PS these days, much
better supported and portable etc.

Ghostview isnt that great really, a lot of times it wont print out stuff for
me. Perhaps my installation's not correct or something is missing but there
you go, its either non standard or imperfect, I think it is PD software.

In the future I'd like to see all the documentation integrated. I would like
to browse through all of the manual and wiki and module docs linked, in a
similar way that Python and Perl do so well. I've got the "Luax" project in
the pipeline and I'd like to link up module docs to manuals etc.
