The ActiveState docs seem to be just html versions of the
docs distributed with the package, from what I've seen.
IMO, the docs would need considerable work to bring them
up to stdlib standards -- they're rather sketchy and
incomplete in many areas.

The package itself could also do with an overhaul. A lot
of stuff seems to be wrapped twice in different ways,
once in win32api and again in win32gui.
