It's indexed according to common problem areas, as opposed to say, by
thread.  I find this superior, because when I have a problem, I can see the
link to an area that deals with that kind of problem.
You've probably never needed to look at it, being a guru,  but there are
sections on i.e. &nbsp; or grouping, because these issues seem to snag each
new generation of XSLT learners.  This has helped me quite a bit.  Having
said that, I'm too much of a Schema newbie to say for sure that such an
indexing system will lend itself to Schema FAQS-perhaps you experts can
better make that call, or let time make it apparent to us all.

>Do you have strong feeling about the superiority of multi-doc vs.

I have strong feelings about those people who do the work for FAQS - strong
feelings of gratitude.  If it pops your tarts to have a single-doc format,
and it'll make being the keeper of the FAQ an easier chore for you, than I'm
all for it. 

Thanks again
