I don't think that the posting below is precisely right. The SAS V8
OnlineDoc CD-ROM is shipped at no extra charge with the V8 software
distribution. It is in HTML format. While I don't play a lawyer in real
life or on TV, I believe that it can be distributed in the same manner that
a site is allowed to distribute the Institute software.
Now if you want SAS V8 documentation in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format, that
costs $199 or a whole lot of box tops for that CD-ROM.
