I agree. In many documents over a couple of pages you often want to refer back to an earlier section and it much quicker to find by sheafing through the paper. My complany made a big fuss about how the intranet cut down the paper bill. No, I think it cut down the paper bill for central services, but individual offices just buy lots of paper to print locally. Also, so much more is written now that is of little vlaue. If you had to hand-write you'd make sure only relalvent stuff went down. If word processeors had existing a couple of hundred years ago the American Declaration of Independcen would have been a thoudsand pages long, with hyperlinked sections, flashy graphics and America still a colony as readers wondered what George Washington's point was.
