While the procedures to build many different help systems are very
elegant, I find the HTML help is much better than the Latex or old man
page system and is especially good because it works well on non-Unix
systems. The main short-coming is support for mathematical symbols, but
I believe that is fixed by HTML3. Are there good reasons for not moving
to an exclusively HTML help system?
