Defending WebObjects' Honour

Thanks for the high regards Dori. B-)
But Dori... you didn't try very hard. At the bottom of the document on kbase.info.apple.com is a form, "Email this document". I sent myself the document. Right at the top of the document is:
Link to original article: PowerBook and iBook: Resetting Power Manager
Note the URL: http://www.info.apple.com/kbnum/n14449 ... it redirected me to http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=14449 . Both are perfectly linkable directly. And it could have been if it was a WO URL too.
(I just made that URL up, it doesn't work...)
The problem isn't WebObjects, it's whoever did the design of the support site. There's no reason why a WO site can't have bookmarkable links... none whatsoever. Hopefully Apple will just program their kbase app properly so it exposes a direct link to documents without the email step.
