When Inside Mac changed from the series of numbered volumes to the
[endless] series of named volumes, there were soon LOTS of volumes. (It's
essentially the named series which became HTML.)
At one point Apple's "d e v e l o p" magazine ran something like the
following apocryphal exchange:
Developer: How many Inside Macintosh volumes will there be?
Developer Support Engineer: How long is your bookshelf?
