This list is getting out of hand:

                     Read the Integrated Docs online

There should only be one link "Read Documentation Online".  When you click
on that you get all the tables of content and you can make a much better
decision which book you actually want to read.

In any case, this list could be better organized visually.  Maybe
something like

_Read Documentation Online_

_Download the Documentation_

* HTML

    Complete documentation set (tar.gz, 648k)
    Complete documentation on a single page (xxxk)

    Administrator's Guide (tar.gz, xxxk)
    Administrator's Guide on a single page (xxxk)

    Developers' Guide (tar.gz, xxxk)
    etc.

* Postscript

    Administrator's Guide [ A4 ] [ US Letter ]
    Developer's Guide [ A4 ] [ US Letter ]
    etc.

* PDF

    ...

Should we integrate these into the build system?

> Can someone generate PDF versions of these?
