I agree with Matthew.  The best approach is to offer multiple documentation
formats.  Each document platform/technology offers advantages (and
disadvantages) over other platforms. 

I prefer PDF because I like the eletronic book approach it takes (WYSIWIG).  It
preserves everything in the presentation, including nice illustrations that can
really clarify some hard-to-grasp technical concept like encryption.

I would still like to volunteer to provide the PDF [nicely illustrated :-) ]
version of the manual (ie, electronic book).  

It seems to me that we could coordinate the documentation with each release of
the software (or at least with each major release).
