- only that they output the same documentation.

I concur the problem is less severe with documentation than with
programs, as translating to text and reformating is often not that big
a loss for documentation. But I think in most cases only a .pdf is still to
hard to change to call it free.

Would you call a Word document a good enough source? After all, it requires a proprietary program to process it properly! :-)

imho, the difference between plain text and a plain pdf is minimal. If, however, the pdf has loads of embedded links etc ...

Cheers,
