      On my BIG TODO list is a project to write man(1) pages for HTML tags. Same issue, I’d rather not Google for stuff. I believe a big reason for software complexity is the ability to Google stuff. If documentation was given priority to be available offline in a digestible format, I believe software would be less complex.

            Just want to mention that you can also put a text file in /usr/share/misc/http.status which can be queried with grep.

              I prefer scrapping MDN because they have up-to-date documentation and great examples.
