Richard who, from my reading of the list, I agree is one of the nice (and
helpful) members of the community.

Thanks to Nick, Mark, and Richard for politely enlightening me.
Apology accepted, and thanks to Nick, Mark and the rest of my legal team :) Like Nick suggested, if you like that paragraph, you should buy the whole book, because it has a lot more good stuff in it (and I'm certainly not going to scan or retype all of it for you!)

In general, I find the online help good for providing "how to" advice on syntax; but you gain a much better understanding of when and why to do things, and how they work, by reading the manuals. While they are not a substitute for complete statistical texts, the manuals have lots of examples, brief explanations, and technical notes that help to clear up otherwise puzzling things.
