The big advantages of a printed book is that you can read it while away from
your computer, 'turning the page' is generally much quicker, and that you can
put it on the desk while keying examples. This latter point is particularly
important while setting up, before you have a full environment.
The other big advantage for authors of the printed word on paper is that
readers are more than happy to pay real money to read the authors' words,
while web pages have been gratis for so long that that is expected.
On the other hand the really significant advantage of a web-page approach is
that it is now very feasible to generate full indices using ht://dig for
example. Unfortunately, few sites seem to offer this. ( Hint :-)

This looks like just what I'm looking for. It's bookmarked. Many thanks.
NB. This PC runs Linux. If you find a virus apparently from me,
it has forged the e-mail headers on someone else's machine.
Please do not notify me when this occurs. Thanks.
