columns, hyperlinks, graphics, with the added advantage of small file sizes, 
and a http-enabled viewer that will have sound support built in once we 
release that Beta.

Wonderful! What is the timescale for release of an HP-UX version? We are
using HP-UX 9.03 and X11R5

Is there online documentation of this format, or is it defined by whatever 
Microsoft chooses to do next?
