  Zope is an open source web application framework.  It has three
  distinct audiences:

    *Site Managers* -- individuals who use of Zope's "out of the box" features
     to build websites.  This audience is interested in making use
     of Zope's existing array of features to create content
     management solutions.  They will likely make heavy use of
     "through the web" scripting using DTML, Page Templates, and
     Python Scripts as well as (of course) HTML and XML.  They are
     generally less concerned about code reuse than the speed with
     which they can create a custom application or website.

    *Developers* -- individuals who wish to extend Zope to create
     highly customized solutions.  This audience is likely interested
     in creating highly reusable custom code that makes Zope do something
     new and interesting.

    *Administrators* -- individuals responsible for keeping a Zope
     site running and performing installations and upgrades.

     I really like the idea of a downloadable PDF. However the header on every page is "Introduction" (same in the
     Zope Book). This doesn't give you much clue which chapter you are on and can be confusing.
     I know that HTMLDOC supports putting the chapter name in the header. Can you do this instead?
