What I was actually googling for is "ghc haskell language pragma", and
then you get loads of results from manuals before GHC had a language
pragma. I don't mean searching to find the documentation, I mean
searching to find content within the documentation.

Or just one big HTML page, the Firefox inline search is quite powerful.

And trying that with my above query I get way too much code, and
nothing useful - but one to bookmark for the future.
