   RE: [xml-dev] xml, books

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi All

Its a lot easier to update spiral bond books as technology 
and specs change rather then reprint.

Some of the publications I work on are of this type where 
only the pages that have changed from one revision to the
next are printed and sent to the subscribers.

+1 Jason.

Whether its for examples or reference,
a spiral bound publication would be an order easier to use...

Even easier than a web page version.
