We're nearly there with the F9, so it might be fine to go ahead with
F10 for you?

Or a virtualized instance might help.

That sounds good, although I'll give you the usual caveat about
screenshots and why we eschew them:

That is a good question that Matthew and others need to think about.
Once the initial F9 User Guide is converted, it might be easier to do
the F10 update directly in XML.

However, history around here has shown that you get a *lot* more
contributors when you draft in the wiki.  If the conversion process
can be brought down to a few hours or so, then doing the work in the
wiki makes more sense -- you get more collaboration, more visibility
in to the work in progress, and so forth.
