a big mistake -- well, IMHO -- on YUI site

On http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/, the "Getting Started" is really confusing.

However, after you download it, and set up the download as a local site, then, in the root index.html, there is this:

>>>>>Check out the examples of YUI in action. We recommend starting with the Event Utility and Dom Collection examples; Event and Dom provide an important foundation for JavaScript developers using YUI. Once you've reviewed those two foundational pieces, go on to explore utilities like Drag and Drop and Animation or UI controls like Button, Calendar and TabView. If you're interested in YUI's CSS components, read through the examples for Reset, Base, Fonts, and Grids in that order.


-----------IMHO, this is gold, why they do not use this in the top level "Getting Started"? ---- big mistake, I would say.

Survic --

Having written both the sections in question, I couldn't agree more. We'll make that more clear on the public site (and in some other ways) when we release 2.3.0 GA in the near future.

Thanks for the feedback.

Regards,
Eric
