I haven't done a NESUG paper for a couple of years, so I don't know the current guidelines. Since papers are no longer delivered in a hard-copy proceedings volumne, one thing which has crossed my mind is doing some kind of hyperlinked and possibly mixed-media job, possibly using HTML or Adobe Acrobat tools. It would have to work in PDF, since that's the standard.
