There needs to be a balance between readability and professionalism. At the 
moment I think the balance is slightly too far towards the easy-reading, 
joke-laden end of the spectrum -  the titles of the first chapter and first 
section should definately be less jokey IMHO. I have no prolems with occasional 
jokes in the main text ("Drag and Drop, not to be confused with falling 
reptiles, ..." made me chuckle)

Clearly a lot of work has gone into the HIG, and I think overall it's looking 
pretty good. Obviously it's still a work in progress and I'm sure it will be 
cleaned up by the time as R1 draws ever closer. Good work, DarkWyrm!
