An ArcGIS 10 webhelp topic on relationship classes states that they will "allow you to query related features and records. Similar to an ArcMap join, you can query, perform analysis, and generate reports with attributes from a related class."  What does this mean or where is some help on how to do this? 

I understand that you can access the related records (one at a time) using Identify or from the attribute table using the Related Tables command.  Is this what the help means by "query" or "perform analysis"?  Is there any way select multiple records (related table or related features) using a query expression, or symbolize based on related record values?  I'm working with a 1:M relationship.
