Whatever you decide to use, I suggest to consider the likely split
between the frequency of electronic vs. paper reading. If I was
doing it, my primary concern would be the ability of the chosen
format to support flexible, "read-time" formating for electronic
displays of both 'pad and desktop monitor size. I also believe
colour has no place in such publications. All just IMHO, and from
someone who does not even remember when he last printed a
computer manual...
