Because doing anything but printing with it is a nightmare. For the forthcoming _Perl CD Bookshelf_ we had _Programming Perl_ in SGML; it went on-line easily. We had four books in Frame, relatively well- tagged; we saved them as XML and then processed them into DocBook with Perl. Pretty easy. _Perl in a Nutshell_ was in troff, and took more time to convert for on-line use than the other books put together.
