Product technical manuals are a very important part of getting and keeping your product in use. Few people do this job properly.The end result is a lot of unhappy customers who won't recommend your product and who can be the source of a lot of wasted company time answering queries, which could have been avoided by having a decent manual or data sheet in the first place.The best way of doing these is with a maximum graphical content.

Here they will weave in comments for different versions and drive the reader (who is traditionally impatient) mad.
