Hi all,
    My name is Rob Dolin and this is my first post to the list.  I've been drafting a "Primer" doc for Pointer Events [1] and Doug (CC'd) suggested I pose this question to the mailing list:

    I was looking at the New Page Form [2] and I'm wondering if I should post the Pointer Events Primer as a "Guide" or as a "Tutorial."  (Below is an outline of the content I'm in the process of writing.)

    Thanks very much-
