It's a pity the sidebar with the contents doesn't display properly in Opera.  Even IE complains that there is an error in the Javascript...

I found this under the Documentation Link on vim.sourceforge.net

Christ, this is horrible.  Completely unnecessary javascript document.writeln crap in every page.  Unreadable in w3m or without javascript, for no good reason.  Is this just for source obfuscation?

Use the PDF instead.

The link provided "http://www.peachpit.com/series/publisher.asp?st=45308"; redirects to "http://www.peachpit.com/series/publisher.asp?st=45308"; and don't show the HTML version of the Vim Book.

Yes, the PDF link is working properly, instead.

On my own xpdf on Linux FC3, and on my mothers WinXPpro, the fonts in the pdf are a little wierd. Especially in the illustrations.
I think it should be monospaced, because all the arrows are pointing the wrong places, and the selections are too long. Is there any known way to fix this?
