The question I would pose to you is, is the wiki designed for the ease of use for people updating the information, or for the ease of use of the people needing help? A solution for one group does not automatically make that solution the best for another group.

With printed documentation, one of the perennial complaints everywhere is the difficulty in updating the data. To which I say, a lot of that is hogwash to me. I figured out a way to minimize the difficulty in updating the information close to 20 years ago. I keep waiting for various "brain trusts" to put out a document using that solution, but it seems to be more than they can handle. :-)

I think I'll just keep my secret for my own use.   :-)
