+Summary: Can't browse GTK# documentation with monodoc or the web frontend
+I can't browse the GTK# documentation either via monodoc installed locally
+or via the official website. If I open it in the web frontend, I can't
+access the tutorial because there don't appear to be any links to it. Those
+things to which there are links are more often broken than not (though I
+suppose that that's a different bug report). When I attempt to browse the
+documentation offline in monodoc, there's no listing of the GTK# tutorial
+table of contents in the Contents node, and there are no "previous" and
+"next" navigation items in the nodes themselves. This means that I have to
+select a node, view it, then go back and select a new node. This is a very
+annoying and bass-ackwards methodology of viewing documentation, and it's
+preventing me and certainly others from learning GTK#. The fact that there
+doesn't appear to be any other way to read the GTK# tutorial (besides
+unzipping monohb.zip and viewing it in a browser, but I shouldn't have to
+do that -- and the "no navigation" item still applies) is a disappointment.
+I'm quite interested in this technology (Mono and .NET in general) and am
+working on getting it to function properly on FreeBSD. The fact that the
+documentation is difficult to navigate makes this process even more trying
+than it is otherwise.
