Whew that would be an essay. If you have the time please read this document
from the thai open source initiative.

Thanks Nick for the vote of confidence.
However, it seems that people are confusing this proposal with some other
issues we are currently discussing. So, again, I must state that this would
be a tool that will work under Mozilla and Firefox and that this is a project
separate from my aim of providing the ubuntu-docs on Any Browser.
Users should always have the choice whether to use Mozilla/Firefox or not and
our ubuntu-docs should be available under their chosen application. My
suggestions are just an application layer that enables convenience, easier
access to information for Mozilla/Firefox users and is a drive above and
separate from the Any Browser format.
The ideas mentioned are very much "blue skying" on my part. Just ideas to
enhance accessability to ubuntu-docs.
This said, I would like to remind people that enrico has gone to the trouble
of creating a web page to store ideas. Can people please add their wishes to
this page so we have it there.
