How can I help make the docs better? (When I'm too green to know how?)

One way could be to have a web interface to diff the docs for easy submission
of typos and similar.

I could request any doc file, get it in a text box in a form, make my changes
(or copy/paste them), press the Diff button and *ta da* get the diff back 
to submit.
