Excellent.  I had to carefully cut out, scan, & OCR each page to
generate an electronic version (a process that took forever).  This
would make that task much easier.

It would also make it easier to distribute the pages - you could print
& include only the relevant pages for each section in your resupply,
rather then having to cut up the data book.

And the ultra-light crowd could reduce the font size, print on smaller
paper, saving crucial ounces...
