How do I actually get the body (i.e. the textual content) of any say question or answer.

For example, for question (id= 7406104), I call:

http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/questions/7406104

But in the response, I can only see the title. How can I get the actual question details:

As mentioned in the API documentation, you simply need to pass in the body=true parameter to get the body of the question.

In the upcoming version of the API, you'll be able to use filters to specify what you want returned in advance.
