<li> '''[[Menus]]'''
:We would like to know what ideas you have for the documentation. We know that many of you would like "off-line" documentation, allowing one to print off the entire manual; we are working on this.

  <ol>
:If you have any ideas, please use one of the methods below (i.e. mailing list or IRC).

    <li>[[Menu:File_open|File (with a Win-Test file opened)]]
;User-editing of pages/articles

    <li>[[Menu:Messages|Messages]]
:Whilst you should primarily refer to this documentation, obviously not everything has been covered here (yet). As a result, there are other ways of obtaining the answer(s) to your question(s):
+
    <li>[[Menu:Tools|Tools]]
::* The Win-Test [http://www.f5mzn.org/pipermail/support/ mailing list] should be your primary source for support. Please note there are still gaps in the documentation, but rest assured, we are working on it!
+
    <li>[[Menu:Windows|Windows]]
::* You can often find the Win-Test team idling in the [irc://irc.blitzed.org/win-test Win-Test IRC channel] on the [http://blitzed.org Blitzed] IRC network. If you do not have an IRC client installed, you can use [http://www.blitzed.org/chat/ this web-based client], which requires no installation of any software.
