Certainly in the html docs it should be possible to fold up the
examples by default, and then show them in response to a click.
Probably some simple script embedded in the html could do that.
(Something I don't know anything about.)

I want to implement a category system in the near future,
the notion being that an item can belong to multiple categories.
E.g. the category illustrated above could be "Roots of equations"
or something like that, but polynomial factorization could also
be categorized under "Polynomials" and Newton's method under
"Numerical methods". There would be a separate documentation
item for each category, with a list of the topics which fall into
that category, plus maybe a summary or overview.
