This page could use a little more info about what are good values for 
max_gradient, or how to choose a good value.

lol ... ok but first you're going to have to be more specific. what /i 
do/ know about max_gradient is that the value changes with more complex 
the objects. this page is a markup and grammar disaster so i'm going to 
be touching the page anyways.

I don't know how to use max_gradient either. Maybe someone who actually 
knows can chime in?

like i said ... the max_gradient value changes (increases) the more 
complex the object is
