Re: [AMBER-Developers] Ideas about a reorganization of the Amber manuals

I probably don't have the most "up-to-date" opinions on such things, but I tend to also think the PDF is a really good format, as it is searchable and online, but can also be printed, and generally prints correctly. I see web pages as something more appropriate for a growing information base, with the generally annoying "features" of often not printing well, and getting correct presentation in every browser out there seems to be a challenge (or at least I see a lot that don't consistently hit FireFox and Internet Exploder...). Perhaps web pages would be more appropriate for update/addendum info between releases? Just one more opinion.

We can make an html version, although (depending on how it is done)
it's a fair amount of work, especially in getting the figures, equations,
cross-references to be both correct and to look good.

I've generally thought that people would use the pdf version as a searchable,
on-line manual. But thinking about other formats is worthwhile.
