In the Windows version of this encyclopedia, lessons are lists of basic terms about a topic. They also provide a springboard to many other definitions, because every term is linked to every other (see virtual hypertext). However, the lesson lists contain only a fraction of the more than 25,000 terms in this encyclopedia.
