Pls correct me if I'm wrong - I believe the last time I checked the RH
docs CD, only the plain text version of the HOWTOs were included,
and not any of the other variants (HTML, PDF, etc.); true?
Maybe we can assist in helping to come up with a nice package
of the LDP docs for all the various distributions to use? Would
this be worthwhile?
(At SGI I use the single-file HTML variants, filter the
HOWTO-INDEX somewhat, then apply indexing. I put
this together for our Tech Pubs Library website.).
