It's both.  IMHO, two relatively easy things to do which could help:

  1. Move the faq.html and documentation.html out of DOCS and into the
     top directory.  Preferably the two documents should be merged
     into one README or INSTALL file.

  2. Convert them into plain text

I really hate to read documentation with lynx.  Less is a lot more
user friendly.  Also, it would be nice if a native English speaker
looked through the text.  You don't have to be a hardcore C coder to
do this.  Any volunteers?
