Thanks Mark, Wolfgang, I think this is a worthwhile area, although
difficult. My hope was that "ordinary" users might have a view of what they

what I can do from a naive user perspective.

- one or two forward you to sketchy pages, not really explaining

like workable examples.
Not perfect, but at least consistent, moderately readable and, possibly,
even helpful is Cousin Jess' WiKi, see
I put it up years ago with some titles to get it started in the hope that
the community would continue with it and flesh it out, as they discovered
things. No one ever did :( I referenced it as a starting point for Ross if
he wants to share his findings.
