I think that is a really good idea. I use "mdn [query]" every day and if
I'm going to replace MDN with this, it needs an easy way to find content. I
also have a pipe dream of WPD being the one to beat w3schools, but for this
to happen the SEO needs to be top notch, in addition to semantic HTML5,
microdata, schema, etc, and of course great content.
