Generally you should post attachments like this to your
fedorapeople.org space (or some other web-accessible location), and
put the URL in your email. Some people will have a hard time with the
attachments, and others with the mail bloat, otherwise.

Ah, and I see what's happening on my system and why it's different
now. I have gnome-user-docs and gnome-devel-docs, for instance,
installed on my system, so it looks different:

[paul@scarlett ~]$ rpm -qa yelp fedora-release-notes gnome*docs*
yelp-2.28.1-1.fc12.x86_64
gnome-devel-docs-2.28.0-1.fc12.noarch
fedora-release-notes-12.0.2-1.fc12.noarch
gnome-user-docs-2.28.0-1.fc12.noarch

The result:
http://pfrields.fedorapeople.org/temp/desktop-yelp-f12.png

That's why I was so surprised to hear about this "default" listing!
Perhaps gnome-user-docs was removed from the default Desktop Live CD
in a previous release, for space reasons. With the new, larger
Desktop Live image, I'm hoping that's no longer the case.
