More about documentation...

I was woken up by some noise this night, and couldn't go back to sleep.
So I wrote a quick first draft of what I've been meaning regarding the
Debian documentation WWW interface.  It is attached to this mail, and
is also available as <URL:http://www.iki.fi/liw/linux/debiandoc.html>.

None of the links work, but it should give some idea of what I mean.

Note, by the way, the total lack of inline images. :-)
