Considering on-line space limitations, you're probably _not_
finding it.

It would take a pretty fervent on-line advocate to claim that most
onl-line doc wouldn't need to be supplemented with paper docs that can
act as a _reference_: to present every last detail.

Then there's the other difficulty that Karen alluded to: it's tough
with on-line doc to know how much else there is, and to get the sense
of context that you can easily get with paper. I think this problem
may be solved sooner or later, though.
