>From google:
Confluence has most of the standard formatting options you'd see in other document editors. The text you add to the page is formatted as normal text, but you can assign up to six levels of headings by changing the paragraph style.

It requires a license to access the docs, but my thought is that we host our own conference server, so I'll have to investigate internally and then decide from there.
But yes, it is very easy to integrate it with the app using oBrowser.

Thank you,

What form do the Atlassian Confluence documents take? Do the documents created end up in a set of HTML files on the server that can be accessed by anyone that does not have Confluence? Or must you have a license for the end user before they can see it? If the answers areYes, you might be able to leverage your existing investment there.
