Since many publisher, no matter which kind of business, release there documentations online and stop including a printed version in their package I’m wonder if we can do it similar.
Instead of updating both version every update I would include a documentation.html in the download package which redirects to the online version. This way I can have documentations on one place and keep them up-to-date more easily
What do you think?

I tried that once and reviewer told me is always needed an offline doc file. tf review.
I think it’s better to have them both in the download (HTML) and online. Sometimes people will need to read the docs when they are not connected (ex. working on local server, but no Internet access), so having a redirect will definitely get your customers angry
I used to do this for my Themeforest items, but sometime around October (last year), Ivor noticed that and told me I’m required to include an offline documentation and not just a link to an online documentation.
In my opinion, online documentation is far much easier to maintain than offline ones.
