In the following:

   _Guide_ means http://docs.plt-scheme.org/guide/
   _Reference_ means http://docs.plt-scheme.org/reference/index.html

I just didn't think of the _Reference_ even though the _Guide_
mentions the _Reference_ at the beginning:

   From Chapter 3 on, this guide dives into details – covering much of
   the PLT Scheme toolbox, but leaving precise details to Reference:
   PLT Scheme and other reference manuals.

In the back of my mind, I knew there was a separate doc because I
remember reading the above quoted paragraph.  I guess that I was too
focused on finding the answer in the document I was currently reading
(i.e. the _Guide_) and didn't think of the other one.

My mistake.
