We know you have a point-of-view, John, but we do appreciate your posts, 
since negative feedback helps us try to make documentation better - we 
know you wouldn't tell us these things if you didn't care.

Christoph and I are in the process of trying to improve the utility of 
the online manual, and soon we will be working on the 2nd edition of the 
manual, so these kinds of suggestions will be considered and answered.

My sense of the direction we're going is that the online information 
will be more comprehensive yet utilitarian, the manual will be 
comprehensive and also delve into various DTP-related issues that we see 
come up in our discussions with various users. It's not enough just to 
understand Scribus operationally, you need to understand its context in 
the print and publishing world (both print and online).
