Try starting with the POV manuals for the standard version of POV. I
started out that way..... and am improving (I hope)!

For Isosurfaces definately start at Samuel's site:
http://members.aol.com/stbenge/
...and then move over to Mike's page:
http://www.econym.demon.co.uk/isotut/

Just go through each lesson one at a time and try them out. I still
think isosurfaces are confusing but I understand how to use them better
and I'm learning more all them time. I would like to understand more
clearly why each thing works the way it does... for instance why does
"abs" mirror the opposite side, or why does "&" cause an intersection?
etc.

Try to analyze the sample scenes coming along with standard POV. Simply
manipulate them a bit and look what happens. Remember that you can
comment out the old code with "//". So it is easy to undo your
manipulation.
If you manipulate a certain instruction you can read the according
paragraph in the manual.
I know that might be hard, but it works. I hope you have a fast enough
computer for your testings ;-)

How strange.. surely you mean "//" not "file://"?

That was probably your Newsreader, which 'thought' this was the beginning of
a link and extended it. OE does something like that at least.

Stranger still... I just installed the new version of OE and now the message
reads properly "//" cool!

file://Not for me it doesn't, and I just D/L the IE 5.01 SP1 a few days ago.
Is that the 5.5 beta by any chance?  Never mind, it is.  I just now looked at
your message post properties.  Well that's good news then, thanks for the
insight.

Forget what I said (secondly anyway) because I hadn't realized my OE was now at
version 5.5 despite IE only being 5.01 still.  Maybe it's the IE version that
matters?  This is OT so maybe I should ask in povray.off-topic while there's a
recent IE 5.5 discussion.

Well, it's not clear for me if it was a question or a statement, but i think
i could explain that "abs" and "&" thing.

Horrible POVer
Horrible writing in english
