An Exponential Notation Meta Page (and scientific notation too)

Here are collected pointers to resources on exponential notation,
and the related scientific notation, orders of magnitude, powers of ten, engineering notation, and significant figures.

```Notes:
For the 2001-Feb-11 overhaul, I waded through something like 400 pages.
This is an order of magnitude more than two years ago.
What pointless duplication of effort, especially given their assorted defects.
All hail significant figures, minimally useful way to characterize error.
Ooo, and all this is just for "scientists" with "very large and very small numbers".
And lets see how many different definitions of "order of magnitude" we can find.
What a zoo.
Search terms (pre-2001)
exponential.notation*
scientific.notation
significant.figures
significant.digits
order*.of.magnitude
power*.of.ten

Doables:
Move the pages which really have a clue to the very top.
Make pretty again.  Smiley faces. :)  Layout.
Annotations.
At this point, a grand synthesis set of pages might be the right thing.  Volunteers?
Look over these links as a set, to check for filtering process pathologies.
