Probably not all output should be visible by default since that might lead
to a cluttered workspace so there should be a mechanism for hiding/showing
nodes or whole branches of nodes.

like to see other documentation, for instance the xhtml+mathml version of
the Jenks-Sutor book, accesible through a menu item.  Other documentation,
like Tim's new books, could  be added as available.
