|Serial vs. parallel working||Multi-user editing clumsy and unpredictable.||Several users can work on the same componentized document - cutting time-to-delivery|
|Reusing materials||Involves cutting and pasting and duplicate copies – problems of aligning versions.||New documents can re-use parts of existing documents. Every component is aligned and up-to-date|
|Inserting images and other media|
