I'll also mention that all of our documentation was in hardcopy format and stored as Word/Visio/PDF files. (At the time, online documentation was still a foreign concept.) Also, our documentation was not at the disaster site, and multiple (internal) personnel had access to it.
I'd definitely favour keeping it as hardcopy. If you are in a DR situation there is no guarantee you will be able to access any online copy.
I came across such a case in a DR exercise I was involved in at a previous company. The documentation was stored as Word docs unfortunately it included a link to another doc stored on the companies normal servers which could not be accessed from the DR site during the exercise.
I favor both approaches. Hard copy and online. Because if you lose the hard copy between DR exercises / disasters, you can always reprint it. But your hard copy may be (and usually is) the only way to access the DR plan during a disaster. And always have multiple hard copies in multiple locations so that when the building burns down or floods you don't lose the only hard copy you have.
