James, try it again. The speed of the menu is now fantastic. Links TO InfoCenter articles from, e.g., the IBM Support search go right there - fantastic.

Now, there are still problems. But this shows that IBM has listened. Praiseworthy effort, IMO. Let's encourage IBM's people - and they are people, after all - to do this well ongoing.

OTOH, I really liked the SoftCopy manuals - nicely searchable and all that. And there was a brief stab at using PDFs and PDF indexes that was really nice, too - not sure why it was dropped.

You can still get at many of the SoftCopy books online - try this link

I, for one, have had it! The IBM InfoCenter site, while containing the great nuggets of truth, is the dunghill of
Web design and functionality.

No s***?!?!

They HAD a couple of perfectly usable systems: Softcopy/BookManager, and printed manuals. I use both like crazy. Why they'd come up with such a kludge, that makes utterly unnecessary use of Java, and works as advertised on no known browser, with no known JVM, to replace it, is beyond me.
