You're right, there it is at the bottom.  Now the mystery is, why 
doesn't "Find" work?  When I'm on this page -- even when I'm looking 
right at this passage -- I hit command-F to bring up the Find dialog, 
type in "object-oriented" (without the quotes) with "ignore case" and 
"wrap around" checked, and click Next, and Mathematica just beeps at 
me.

Hmm, it does work if I search for just "oriented", though...

Ugh, now I see the problem.  I have to search for 
"object\[Hyphen]oriented".  I can understand why it's like this, but 
it's still a nuisance -- I hope that eventually they can make a "-" 
in the find box match a minus, a hyphen, or a dash, as the naive user 
would expect.

Thanks,
-- Joe
