Me too. Even someone with half a brain would realise that their target audience is Oracle professionals/DBAs, who want answers speedily, not cosmetics. If they wanted to throw some money at it, why on earth didn't they just improve the search facilities?

IMHO the information on bugs/patches/workarounds, and other advice in the Notes is generally first class, but sometimes it can be time consuming to find exactly what one seeks. It's frustrating when one thinks "I'm sure the answer is in here somewhere, but I'm damned if I can find it".
