Yeah, it's handy for e-readers. I don't think that's too nice for reference material, but it is for longer prose chapters we have. You can feed PDFs to e-readers but they don't work nearly as well, and if you want to use HTML there I think the only way is to convert the HTML to EPUB first, with worse results than creating the EPUB directly. As I recall, we also support Info format. That could be useful to Emacs fans, but I haven't heard of anyone actually using it. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
