I will look at more of the docs. Thanks.

By the way, both http://chandlerproject.org/Projects/GetStarted and http://chandlerproject.org/Projects/MoreChandlerBasics 
  describe the "Now/Later/Done" thing, but neither points out how the  
UI works. There could be, for example, a tooltip on the button which  
shows "Now/Later/Done". This would make the UI discoverable and more  

I will look for the appropriate place to file this suggestion.

And maybe I can see how to help make note linking happen. It is, INHO,  
truly crucial. I have implemented, as I am avoiding my to-do items, an  
online web app for managing to-do items, and categorization of notes  
via tags and linking of the notes was in version 0.1. But I would like  
to use something like Chandler and stop hand-carving my own wheel.

thanx - ray
