Possible values for the Method option for Graphics??

One of the very disappointing things about the documentation is that the 
possible values for certain options are very difficult to find.

For example, take NIntegrate.  The doc page mentions the Method option, 
but it does not say what the possible values are.  Clicking the link 
just takes us to a generic information page for Method which doesn't 
even mention NIntegrate.  It turns out that the values *are* documented 
at tutorial/NIntegrateOverview, but it is not at all obvious that one 
should look there.

Thanks to the improved (but still not good enough) doc centre in 6.0.2 I 
noticed that Graphics has a Method option too.  What are the possible 
values and where are they documented?
