This is a small stamp at a lower left corner of every page. Pretty
much the same thing many paper sheets' makers put on their sheets,
let alone publishers.

I would very much like others to be honest. The only documentation
it does not come with is Java API documentation. All the rest,
including extensive user guide, tutorial, features specification,
free updates for all pending releases of the same version, additional
components developed and released (such as currently available connector
for XML Spy, that works under Win98, too, unlike some other solutions)
is included.

If you need Java API, you will probably need to ask questions. $1000 is the price
of technical support. Those who have access to the support service
do know that it is  a useful resource indeed.
