No, I meant what should have prompted me to try C-h a apropos?  I've been
aware of C-h a for a long time.  Damn useful thing it is, too.  But I'd
NO idea that there might have been other aproposals, thus no reason to
try C-h a apropos.

If you're interested in the online documentation, you should read the Help
section of the manual (available online naturally, via C-h i).  It lists
`C-h a' and `M-x apropos-documentation' along with many other commands, and
has an entire Apropos subsection (and 8 other subsections).

I think I found out about the other apropos commands long ago by typing
`M-x apropos ?'.  But maybe I'm just curious.
