But your point is well taken. Emacs and xemacs have grown to the

A current markup language that can be viewed on multiple platforms
(like html) is the way to go. It would be good to permit a windowZ

I am a fan of the php documentation. I very much like the facility

had have their answers in the annotations. The "oh by the way" check
this when you use this function stuff has been very helpfull.
