Please, PLEASE mention 'man -k <keyword>' and 'man -K <keyword>' in the
tip about 'man'! I have been suprised at how long it takes people to learn
about these tricks -- it's no wonder people get frustrated with man when
they can only use it to learn about commands they already know the name of. 
Also, using the [options] <argument> syntax should be briefly explained --
you don't want anyone typing literal 
man <startx>
