The problem I have with these web sites that show how to wire three-way switches is that they never show you all the possibilities. Where a web site might show one, maybe two, ways to wire 3-way switches, the little pamphlet free at your home center will show you eight ways to wire it.

Also, I noticed on the second of these two sites, it still shows power returning from the last switch on the white wire. I understand that this is no longer acceptible according to code. The pamphlet I refer to is apparantly up to latest code.
