	I like having the Default also visible in the Syntax section, 
and suggest that the default value always appear first. In other 
words, if WhackyDirective defaults to on, Syntax would be:

Syntax: WhackyDirective on|off<br>

	If off is the default, that should go first. I'd like the 
defaults bold too, but that might be too busy.
