Poor docs regarding "events"

Looking specifically at sortable, but probably this affects all widgets.

You have very little documentation on "Events" in I can't find ANY examples as how to use them as an option, or as an event. I can't find an example anywhere on the internet that shows them being used as events.

I propose:

  • Include examples of how to use them
  • if they are able to be used as events:
  • include examples of how to use them as events
  • if they are not able to be used as events:
  • move them to the options list and call them "callbacks", not "events". They have nothing to do with DOM events so the language is confusing.

I apologize for my shortness, but this was extremely frustrating.

If this affects all widgets, then maybe it would be better to just change the "Events" heading above the events list into a link to some general documentation about how to use jqueryui "events".
