When I click on The Mathematica Book, I see no chapters, no chapter names, no chapter numbers -- unless I think to read the Contents page -- actually 40 pages. It might be helpful if the Contents page weren't already fully expanded and there were chapter numbers next to the chapter names. Anyway, what is Floor doing in a chapter on Advanced Mathematics? Why isn't there a chapter on notation? I suppose that's why an unexpanded Contents page wouldn't be helpful. If you Go To "notation" or "notations", there's no link to "Mathematical and Other Notations". "notation" and "notations" yield different links, too. Very strange. As for looking for LeftFloor -- that makes sense only if you already know about LeftFloor. (Now I do.) Links from Floor to LeftFloor and RightFloor would make a lot of sense, but that's probably why they're not there. Thanks, Alexander. WRI's quirky documentation isn't your fault. You're very kindly helping to make up for it.

It's chapter 3.10.4 (in Mathematica 3.0, Linux Version). You can also find it by looking for \[LeftFloor] in the Master index.
