I'm using 3.6.1.

The index entries for most of the transform keywords point only to the 
quickref. They should point to better locations with actual text 
descriptions. Separate links to the quickref are OK, as long as they are 
nested underneath the main links in the index.

Also, the index entries for "transform", "transformations" and 
"transformations > quickref" all lead to the quickref entry.

Thanks for all your hard work, however your post is a bit lacking ....

I'm back writing the code to pull this stuff back out of the wiki and I 
don't have time to go digging. If you would create a talk page (not the 
entire page ... just the section(s)) were you've spotted the above mentioned 
that would be immensely helpful.

Jim
BTW: Your post about "Operators" was equally confusing .... if you wouldn't 
mind following up in kind, I'd appreciate it!

That's certainly an improvement. However, it would be better still if 
the index pointed to the actual page where the keyword is described.

For instance, "translate" should point here:

http://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Tutorial_Section_2.2#Translate

My original post was with regard to the index of the Windows HTML Help 
file, not any links in individual help pages.

ok ... so it appears that we've corrected the root of that problem. 
coincidently ... been working on the document map section of povdocgen, so 
I'll double check to make sure this section has been mapped properly.
