this site will tell you about the funds as opposed to "appear" and "without knowing much about them"

I know about Yahoo; in fact, this is where I found out these were muni funds. But Yahoo gives no indication as to the fund holdings, the fund expense ratio, nor the effective duration of the funds, the latter of which is critical for someone looking for a one-year holding period.

Yahoo is great for picking up quotes, but I would never buy, or recommend a buy, based solely on information gleaned there.
