Hi Shawn,

I noticed a few small things, some of which may be worth discussion:

1. The Techniques document in the Introduction has a section on 
Technique Collections listing the 'technologies' for which techniques 
exist.  Some similar listing in Understanding with the Introduction 
subsection Sufficient and Advisory Techniques may be useful.

2. An existing problems that I've only just noticed is the display of 
images of examples in the Techniques. For example, with G175 [1] I 
though there was an image over the text as as result of a display 
problem, and then realised that the text was part of the image. For code 
examples, they have good visual differentiation - the same is needed for 
images of examples. Maybe just a border would suffice; maybe a border 
with a ragged edge.

3. Typo with F89 [2]. Criteria should be Criterion
