Good question.  I'm not real experienced with developing documentation
in any of these formats.  

Initally I am writing (I'm a bit embarassed to admit) in Microsoft Word
98 for the Macintosh.  However when I am ready to upload I will convert
either to plain text or to some more widely accessible format.   Any
suggestions from you or anyone else on the list on how to facilitate
this process would be appreciated.

My inclination is to include the tutorial with bioperl-live so that it
gets released with the software that it is to document like (bioperl.pod
or biostart.pod. )
