---------------------------------------

Well missing periods are embarrassing, sorry about that. Thanks for being nit-picky.

What are you using to view ascii docs? I'm using a plugin for intellij but I don't think the
links between documents work in it (I changed it to flowfile and still doesn't work).

I got "flow" when I tried to figure out the link from the developer's guide online. I think
I didn't wait long enough for the url to fully expand.

> The expression language should include a paragraph talking about standard flowfile attributes.
 There really are very few besides say filename, path, uuid.  But these should be talked about.
 And the fact that this is about it is also good to point out.  It would also be be beneficial
to describe how a user can see what attributes were on a flowfile at a given point in the
flow to aid the user in debugging and truly understanding the flow.
