Actually, I still have anxiety when researching things in hypertext,
particularly in help systems. I am always afraid that I am missing
something important. Did that last skip hop over something I should have
read? Should I have searched in a different direction? The *chunks* of
information that I read often seem to lack depth. If I still don't resolve
my question, I am very annoyed.
I may also skip important information in a book by not reading it from cover
to cover, but it's familiar. <grin>
