User interfaces and supporting documentation are both supposed to help
people when using a complex device. But often, these forms of support seem
to come from different worlds. User interface designers, document designers,
and researchers in both interface and document design share many goals, but
are also separated by many barriers.

In this book, user interface designers and document designers from Microsoft
Corporation and from Apple Computer, plus researchers from several
universities try to bridge the gap between interface design and document
design. They discuss opportunities for closer cooperation, and for more
integrated and effective help for users of modern technology.
