Details
 Polyhedra can be specified by standard names such as "Dodecahedron" and "TruncatedCube".
 Classes of polyhedra supported include "Platonic", "Archimedean", "ArchimedeanDual", "KeplerPoinsot", "Johnson", and "Uniform".
 PolyhedronData[] and PolyhedronData[All] give a list of all available polyhedra.
 PolyhedronData[patt] gives a list of all polyhedron names that match the string pattern patt.
 PolyhedronData[n] gives a list of polyhedra with n faces, with faces not necessarily being convex.
 PolyhedronData[;;n] gives a list of polyhedra with ≤n faces.
 PolyhedronData[m;;n] gives a list of all standard polyhedra with m through n faces.
 PolyhedronData["class",n], etc. gives a list of polyhedra in the specified class with n faces, etc.
 PolyhedronData["Classes"] gives a list of all supported classes.
 PolyhedronData["Properties"] gives a list of properties available for polyhedra.
