 Third-party helpers
 ===================
 
-BeautifulSoup
+The following third-party Python packages are not included in WebHelpers due to
+their size or dependencies, but are often used in WebHelpers applications.
 
-HTMLTidy
+`BeautifulSoup <http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/>`_
 
-Unidecode
+    A robust HTML/XML parser that can make sense of bad markup.
 
+`HTMLTidy <http://tidy.sourceforge.net/>`_
+
+    Clean up and pretty print HTML. This is a C library. There are several
+    `Python bindings
+    <http://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=tidy&submit=search>`_ to
+    it.
+
+`Unidecode <http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Unidecode>`_
+
+    Convert Unicode characters to ASCII equivalents. Accented letters and
+    symbols are converted to a visual approximation, and non-Latin letters
+    are converted to their standard Latin pronounciation.  Several of the
+    ``convert_\*`` functions in ``webhelpers.text`` will use Unidecode if
+    it's installed.
+
+`Unipath <http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Unipath>`_
+
+    An object-oriented alternative to the path functions in ``os``,
+    ``os.path``, and ``shutil``.  Similar packages include
+    `path.py <http://pypi.python.org/pypi/path.py>`_.
