Camille, I agree with them. In fact, we've released a set of HOWTOs as
a reference guide and it's acceptance was VERY good. People like to
read things written with humor and as if they were by your side,
talking to you. I've even read a book on how to write books (:-)) that
teaches writing this way. If I remember the title (of the right book)
it's "On writing well". I don't remember it's author.
