I just came across the following post in the winhlp-l mailing list. While
this looks like it might be interesting (being at IBM notwithstanding), I
might look askance at the requirement "to architect the user assistance
into the application."

I dunno. The first thing I'd do if I took the job: rewrite the job
description in plain English and dump the jargon.
