So one the hand, it seems that adding a button to open a pdf manual in
the system's default pdf viewer software is quite doable, and would not
require that much development effort. However, this would also reduce
the manual's accessibility, and the user experience would not be as

On the other hand, having a locked down manual reader in the browser
seems like it would be the most user-friendly option. However it's also
apparent that creating it would require non-trivial research, design,
and implementation effort. Realistically, mcs and brade would be doing
most of this work, although I'd like to help out as I could. Do either
of them of the time or willingness to make this a priority? If not, is
Lunar willing to compromise his strategic vision for the manual in order
to make sure this entire project doesn't get placed on the backburner
and neglected?
