It certainly is.

That really is good.  Even if a Q/A pair isn't quite right, the Jumbo

How about a "Miscellaneous" page for those?  A FAQ page with 100%
(:pagelist:) Q/As could be an effective way to reach a lot of the

I think it's essential that #anchors will be usable in the FAQ section
of a document and in the FAQ page itself.  (I can't seem to reach
pmwiki.org to test that right now.)
