Not only that, but it means that you can have the official
documentation with you while you're offline, and that can be
surprisingly useful for a multitude of reasons (or even a potential
lifesaver if you need to fix something and your networking is broken
-- or just ran out of money on casual wireless overseas).
I'll have a think and tinker with the three documentation packaging
suggestions from Juan, and let you all know if/when it gets anywhere.
