Yes, you told me that a long time ago. But I also remember you told me
that it only works in Windows. Plus the "help" is at the mercy of the
documentation writer.... by that I mean, there might not be a Index or
a Table of Content, and Searching PDF's are damn slow. And while we
are talking about slow - Acrobat Reader (installed by most users,
especially under Windows) has the longest start-up time of any PDF

Yup, still a crazy idea.  ;-)
