Jacob Nielsen is mainly known among web designers. Many of his writings 
are set books for these people. He has done many studies on how people 
read web sides. One of his conclusions is that the eye often moves in an 
F shape when reading the screen, starting with the upper bar i the F, 
then the lower bar in the F shape and at last the vertical bar. I do not 
think reading the GIMP manual will follow this pattern.
