I can see the Haddock information, but not the Hoogle/HsColour mashup.
I'm using Firefox 3. Am I missing something? How do you get started with
a Hoogle query?

I believe you emailed me privately with a question about pointing at
haddock documentation from Hoogle. I'm currently a bit out of sync with
emails as I've just moved house, don't yet have internet, and can't
check my gmail account from work. The answer, from what I can remember
of the question, is:

"How do I get Hoogle to point at a particular documentation repo?"

The answer is to add a line similar to:


to the Text file you get out of haddock --hoogle.

You can also add an @hackage url, which is treated as the home page of
the package.
