Writing Documentation: Teach, Don't Tell

Good documentation needs to be able to walk the line between being good enough and exhaustive. Nobody wants to spend a lot of time reading what they would consider pointless supportive text, but sometimes this explanatory thread is the best way to communicate the ideas involved.
