Yep, so re-READ the thread and you will see that I started talking about 
consistency of the documentation, this thread has then broken off at a 
tangent and started talking about technical issues of link formats...

Seriously - re-read the original email - there is one brief paragraph 
justifying WHY I am fixing the documentation, but the basic email is 
about improving consistency of the documentation.

Well I still disagree, but this is getting nowhere, lets get back to the 
"lets improve the documentation" topic which is the key issue

Actually you are re-ordering the conversation - that was me giving up 
and ranting earlier today.  This happened AFTER all the other stuff

Check the Changelog and notice that I was starting to edit the 
documentation just before posting my original question...

Actually you are the second person to make such a comment without even 
thinking to check the changelogs...  I think you should at least do some 
basic research and actually read the original post before trying to send 
digs my way...
