It's a new section of the documentation. Each topic in the cookbook will
consist of a code segment (usually one handler) that solves a specific
problem, and a discussion of the techniques used in the example code. The
examples range in complexity from beginning to advanced. It's intended both
to provide useful code for various common tasks, and to illustrate how to
use language features in a more extended way than the one-line examples in
the Transcript Dictionary.

We're still working on this and finalizing the list, but the entries will
include things like handling selection of choices from a Text menu,
removing comments from a script, saving a backup, centering a stack window
on the screen, limiting the number of characters in a field, listing the
unique words in a string, truncating text to a pixel width, and many more.
