In the "Import Raw Data" dialog box, what is
no/little/big/default-endianness?? Seems to default to
"little-endian"...which works well enough for me. But...what does it mean?

This is how multi-byte values are read from the file. E.g. most of data you=
will ever want to import is 16-bit (2-byte), and the question is which byte=
contains most-significant bits and which - less significant. As in decimal=
system, if you read the number "25" you interpret it as a "little-endian":=
2*10 + 5*1.
