+
+Library support is provided for this different representation, including
+@code{lens}-related functions for converting between each and abstracting over
+their similarities.
+
+The @code{Validation} data type is isomorphic to @code{Either}, but has an
+instance of @code{Applicative} that accumulates on the error side.  That is to
+say, if two (or more) errors are encountered, they are appended using a
+@{Semigroup} operation.
+
+As a consequence of this @code{Applicative} instance, there is no
+corresponding @code{Bind} or @code{Monad} instance.  @code{Validation} is an
+example of, \"An applicative functor that is not a monad.\"")
