I believe it is ordered intentionally as it is and some related pages
would be separated by an alphabetical order.

- The first few pages incrementally get you started with the language.
- Beginning with Character, there are pages about specific data types
or data structures, which is more about protocol than about syntax or
- The Collection types are next to each other, Association belongs to
Dictionary and is introduced immediately before Dictionary.
- After the collections come the streams (which are kind of related to
- Point, Rectangle, and Pen are also related for geometry and drawing.
- Finally some advanced stuff about metaprogramming and programmatic
introspection (e. g. in Class / Metaclass), which you don't really
want to be high up the list for newcomers (after all C is the third
letter of the alphabet).
- Debugging might be helpful a bit earlier though.
