4.0 Help Browser

With Mathematica 3.0 and 4.0 the all important (Utilities`Notation`) package
is documented in the Help Browser.
It's in the same place in 3.0 and 4.0, but for those who don't know this is
where you find it: 
   Goto the Help Browser and select Getting Started/Demos.
   Scroll to the bottom of the left column and select  (Demos > New
Notations)

This package is so important it could be part of the kernel.  OK maybe it
isn't reliable enough to be included in the kernel.  Well they could at
least make it part of the Standard Packages.  That way a new user would have
a better chance of finding it.

In 4.0 (Utilities`Notation`) comes with a lot of extra documentation, but
you won't find it under (Demos > New Notations).  No that would be too
obvious.  To find the extra documentation goto the Help Browser and select
  Add-ons
  Extras > Utilities

You will find lots of stuff to choose from in the 3rd & 4th columns.  So why
is this extra documentation so well hidden?

----------------------

You will also find instructive stuff under:
  Add-ons
  Extras > Programming in Mathematica

Also under:
  Getting Started/Demos
  Demos > Numerics Report

Also under:
  Getting Started/Demos
  Demos > Programming Sampler

--------------------

I have yet to program with MathLink, but those who do should check:
  Add-ons
  MathLink Library

---------------------
You will find a lot of fun stuff under:
  Getting Started/Demos
  Demos

Also under
  Getting Started/Demos
  Sound Gallery

Also under
  Getting Started/Demos
  Animations
