	From all the admins I've met over the years, both at local groups 
(such as OldBaySAGE) and at international conferences (e.g., LISA and 
SANE), I would say that this is a pretty universal opinion.

	There is a place for web documentation, and it may be valuable to 
ship some or all of that documentation with the rest of the software, 
but the core documentation that will actually get used on most any 
non-Microsoft OS is almost certainly going to be the flat text files.
