I was thinking if you were to run the site under a joomla / wordpress install you can export all content or individual articles as PDF's :) that maybe an idea
if you would think about going that way ! I would more than happily give you the hosting space on one of my servers ! I would also create a template in the same design maybe jsut with urban terror rather than counterstrike images as SemteX suggested, I have pm'd you my email ! give me a shout with what you think
I already got a couple of Wordpress blogs up for other reasons but I choosed not to use any system like that this time to give me more flexibility in case I decided to add more functions to the page (for example demo/movie/picture upload and such), but it is a good idea and like I said, it's something I actually considered myself.
Regarding the design I'm open for options (right now it's a slightly modified free web template but I guess that's something you've already noticed .) However, I prioritize readability before design so if anyone would like to make a better design, feel free to do so, but it will have to be at least as as good readability as there are now if you want it to be accepted. I would say design in general is my Achilles' heel so providing CSS and a simple HTML-page with tables/divs/whatever already prepared is a requirement.
The web server is owned and run professionally by a close friend (running a web designing company) so the page will stay there but I really appreciate your offer since good web space sometimes is hard to find.

Please don't put it into a PDF, a navigable web system is the better option for content like this.
UZ has a Help Guides
section which we really don't use enough and adding additional such sections is easy, I could make one just for this begineers guide, but like Seven wouldn't want to come across as trying to ride on the back of your considerable efforts. :)
I agree that PDF is not well suited but with internal links it should be at least manageable. The problem with internal links though is when you deliver a new version since it will probably require quite a lot of manual work... Well think I got some reading up to do when it comes to automatically generate PDFs in PHP if I want that to work .)
Regarding UZ, the link is added to the blog (as you probably have noticed already), if you think it should be moved/added somehwere else, you are free to move/copy it or just contact me (PM/reply/comment) and I'll fix it. I didn't want to put it in the Help Guide myself since I thought that one was only used for UZ related help guides (like page navigation tutorials, rules and such).
Updates to the page
Made some various updates based mostly on comments I've got, two more noticeable though:
1) Added damage stats for all weapons (some updates left to do though)
2) Added an article about how to create a dummy target (thanks to InigoMontoya)
Hope you enjoy it!
1) A complete overhaul of the Equipment section
2) General updates to the page (bug fixes)
3) Added fire rate stats
4) Added a test of SPAS to see how it actually works
5) Added some new articles and updated some existing ones
1) More details regarding jumping techniques
2) Added boot kick, surviving falls, bomb mode tips, SR8 unzoom script and much more (over 130 short articles now)
3) Added a change log and update marker to make it easier to quickly find what's new/updated.
