A good complement to a junk DNA FAQ would be a "mechanisms of mutation" FAQ, which I don't think exists anywhere.  People seem to treat mutation as some kind of magically process and therefore get mislead into all kinds of directed mutation, etc. stuff.

Most stuff on the web appears to be either lecture outlines or very technical "my research is"-type pages.

But there is some good stuff.  For example:

Mutation, Mutagens, and DNA Repair


Introduction: Definitions and mutation rates
Types of Mutations
Origins of Spontaneous Mutation
DNA Repair Systems
