This is one area where Windows users seems to have an advantage. The
standard installer includes the doc set as a Windows help file. I often
keep that open in one window while programming in others. I only later
discovered that this was a copy of the online docs ;-), which I only use
to check the in-development version before submitting a doc bug.
