Well, that's strange (and it does indeed have info on "rand"). But I originally
looked at a different "keywords" page...

http://wiki.povray.org/content/Reference:Keywords

Clicking on "rand" there brings up no actual information, just the word itself.
:-(

The wiki page that I usually look at first, as a general starting place, is...

http://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Contents

 ... and I see now that it does indeed have the correct link to "identifiers and
keywords"-- but that link is located in the first paragraph of the page, which I
didn't originally notice :-O  I think a better place for that link would be in
the left-hand column of the page (with the other entries there), rather than in
the body of the page. And perhaps there's some confusing redundancy of 'keyword'
pages in the wiki?
