well let's leave the Documentation.html and just start removing bigger
chunks to seperate documents, but then still leave some Explanation - so it
ends up looking a bit like the answer from a searchengine, only showing
heading and a paragraph of explanation for each document and the link.

i decided that i'll still do some interface changes on _qbe  before i do any
screenshots- first of all i want some pulldown for the =,>= etc. stuff like
i did in tbl_select - i think that makes things clearer, also i am thinking
of using a vertical approach to it - as soon as you use more than three
columns you have to scroll horizontaly at the moment which i dislike.
