Given that PDF is editable anyhow and needs a special viewer (albeit
readily available) and HTML is so universal, the choice for me has
been quite easy:  HTML.

Since I can snag an ActiveX control and put into VEE,  HTML docs are
even nicer- can bring up the help right there inside of VEE.
Or of course view anywhere else also.

Can even throw in active examples via hyperlinks, etc.

Others will of course have other needs- but HTML works great for me.

If control is an issue, you could look at compiled HTML I suppose.
