I think that this is indeed something that needs attention. It could be a
joined effort of people on the list here that already have some knowledge
about AbiWord to put together some kind of user-reference. Perhaps even in
a way that it is hooked together finally as a hypertext/website thing?
Anyone want to join in with this? I can't spare a lot of time on this at
the moment, but I would be game to set something up.

Idea 1 (the HTML solution):

Page 1: shows the top menu.
Click an option on the "menu", which takes you to a new page where the
clicked menu entry is explained.

Idea 2 (Plain text):

A walkthrough of writing a document, entirely written in AbiWord.

Any givers, takers?
