A short article illustrating some commonly misunderstood,
abused or otherwise unclear aspects of a certain entity
or topic. May contain a bunch of one/two-line Micro-Howtos.
Example: Understanding URL:
  "URLs are used for ... in <whatever>
   The formal Syntax is in RFC NNNN
   There are relative and absolute URLs...
   A proper absolute file URL is...
   A proper relative URL is...
   There is no relative file URL per se...
   The following are not URLs ..."
As for Micro-Howtos, the "Understanding Java Command line"
includes "Howto increase Memory" explaining memory settings
in lay terms etc.
