Hi everybody,
For those of you who have asked about a PDF version of the  
documentation:  we just made PDFs of the User's Guide and Programmer's  
Guide for the last production release (1.2470 Nov 2007).

These are linked near the bottom of
(the page you get from clicking "Documentation" in the lefthand column  
of the Chimera home page).

** HOWEVER, these files have several limitations:

- large size (User's Guide >600 pages, Programmer's Guide >2600 pages!)
- suboptimal page ordering due to the nonlinear nature of the  
- some redundancies, i.e., pages occurring more than once in the PDF  

Because of these limitations, we recommend using the documentation in  
HTML form where possible, and printing from your Web browser to obtain  
hard copies of specific parts as needed.  Also, the HTML documentation  
is updated constantly, whereas the PDF files may not be updated very
