Interesting, but anyone can see them, right?

I have an online version of my docs as well. Don’t see any drawbacks…

Agreed. To a certain extent it might reveal the internal working of a product – but hey it’s all open source anyway :) The benefits of providing this transparency to buyers considering a product as well as an up-to-date resource for those who already own the product far outweigh any negatives in my mind.

In the beginning I used pdf as documentation. Thought it was more elegant of something. But man, when it came to the fact that I had to edit the documentation of my themes because I was releasing updates with new features, the pdf thing became a complete mess and impossible to maintain. So I decided to use html, I’ve rewritten all my templates’ documentation in html and everything’s perfect since then.
