In the field I work in users typically need to have access to both online help and a printable PDF document. This is a nightmare, especially for localization. I realize there are some contradictions between the two formats in terms of how help is ideally written, but I am willing to accept that I won't be able to deliver the perfect help book and the perfect manual at the same time. Anyway, Tinderbox does sound like a great tool for writing the Help/Manual. How easy/hard would it be to not only export to a Help Book but also to a page-based file that could form the basis of a PDF manual?
