doc bug: links should be local

  • In some docs, links are to the copy of the linked doc on the Web. This
    should not be the case, because if I happen to be without an Internet
    connection at that moment, or if I need a reference to the local copy, I'm
    out of luck. For example, at the bottom of the first page of the new Cocoa
    Application Tutorial are four links to further reading - and they are all to
    developer.com documents, not to the existing files on my hard disk (even
    though all those files *do* exist on my hard disk). m.

    It is best to submit a bug report to Apple (and/or possibly use the
    feedback button on the doc page).

    Also this is off topic for this list, likely the best list to use
    would be the Xcode-users list.
