Robert, thank you for your help.  Jeff, here's that doc I was
telling you about.

Ok, I've changed the overfull paragraph around a bit, and now it's 
a underfull paragraph, which is better I suppose.  Both of those 
are caused by longish URL's in the paragraphs, I'm not sure what else can 
be done.

I've added these to the newest revision.

I realised that I hadn't actaully run it through TeX, because my main 
focus was the .info file.  Consequently, there was a few goofs that 
only showed up the TeX formats (like the table of contents being in 
the wrong place).  I think it's best, then, to get this updated copy 
out to everyone instead of worrying about @smallbook.  I may 
move it there in the future, and I'll keep this point in mind whenever 
I write more docs, so thank you for pointing it out.
