Well, limma certainly has a vignette but you will have to install the 
package to read it. The limma vignette is not available from the 
"Vignettes" link from www.bioconductor.org because that link caters only 
for vignettes which are written in a particular markup language called sweave.

If you install limma, you can type help.start() then follow the links: 
Packages > limma > Associated Documentation > userguide.html

If you install Biobase as well as limma, you can type library(Biobase), 
library(limma), then openVignette("limma")


PS. I am old enough, pedantic enough and english enough never to call 
anything a "textual description". Strictly speaking a "textual description" 
would be a description of a piece of text. In Bioconductor it seems to mean 
a description written in text, which is a wonderful tautology. :)
