$() is not in the API documentation

Description

Since $('my selector') is pretty much the *core* API for using jQuery, it would be nice if it was *present* at all; and preferably up front (say, first); in the API docs.

 http://api.jquery.com/

I can't even find $( on that page. Pretty big omission for anybody, starting from first principles, figuring out what that $('#myContentDiv') expression is meant to do.

I'll raise it as a DOCS BUG since $ is the primary jQuery API.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

jQuery() is the long name for $(), most intros to jQuery will mention this. We've never had this issue brought up before so I am going to assume most people found their way to it.
