Interesting idea. I had a dig through the pages below that link but I
don't think I found the sort of code example you meant. Do you have a
more explicit link? And how does it work technically? (If it downloads
all images for all platforms and uses Javascript to toggle between them
then I'd be concerned about total download size vs one page per platform.)

FWIW, my initial plan is to link to the various tours from
http://doc.bazaar-vcs.org/explorer/en/documentation.html. The intention
is to make each tour available in HTML and PDF. (Right now, there's a
PDF version linked from the Windows tour sidebar but I'm yet to do that
for the OS X one.)
