which I agree
however he follows this with:
    All we need to do then is to provide the clearest guidelines/links
between guidelines we can, and the rest can be
    left to the user.
and as i frequently write, this is a problem, because relatively few people
choose to learn via the guidelines route, a significant number indeed, but
far more don't.

an enormous effort has been dedicated to creating the guidelines, and that
is fantastic.
we need to consider providing the information in a variety of forms that
suite individuals preferred learning methods.


it really is time to consider alternative forms.

good examples,

partial solutions,

problems with or without solutions.
