Yes.  There is *very little* worse, when looking for documentation, than
finding documentation that doesn't match your version and only realizing
that tiny little fact after you've spent a whole day trying to
understand why something is not working as they should.

I *always* install and browse locally docs for stuff I use.  People who
look on the net first probably also wrote a browser :)

Not to mention devhelp is a godsend for anyone who is doing programming.
