    I see <http://www.python.org/doc/2.5/> for 2.5 and <http://docs.python.org/>
    for 2.6. I'm guessing these two pages differ somewhat in formats simply
    because someone decided to do so, and not that I'm in the wrong place for
    each of the two versions, correct? For example, somewhere down in the 2.5, I
    should find the 2.6 equivalent of <http://docs.python.org/genindex.html>?

    Correct. The documentation format has significantly changed.

    Not necessarily. The change in format also means a change in indices;
    the formats differ in what indices precisely are created, and what
    precisely they contain. Try

    http://www.python.org/doc/2.5/lib/genindex.html
