If we recommend "transparent source" as we do in the proposed manifesto,
then I'm concerned about this.  Although SGML is better, HTML and
Latex are still transparent.  MS Word is not.  But we have "Securing
and Optimizing Linux: Red hat Edition" in MS Word source.  Can't MS
Word be converted (using MS Word) to HTML?  Also I would like to see
it cover other distributions, not just RedHat.

Also, in the proposed manifesto we say we want plain text and HTML
formats for people who have old hardware or are visually impaired.
But the above "Securing ..." guide doesn't have these formats.
