[3.5] Wizard Spells Known
So I just hit 5th level on my wizard, which means Spontaneous Divination goodness.
The only problem is, while there are an extremely large number of feats, ACFs, general rules, etc. that refer to spells a wizard "knows," there seems to be no definition for what spells those are.
I asked a while back in the RAW Q&A thread and received the following answer:
A Wizard may know any number of spells, but the number known is a limited subset of their class list. Spells known refers to those spells the Wizard has learned either automatically from class abilities (initial level 0 and 1 spells, plus 2 spells per subsequent level) or as demonstrated by the relevant successful Spellcraft checks and study days. See the primary definition of learn: "to acquire knowledge of or skill in by study, instruction, or experience". It is not necessary for the Wizard to have written these spells in a spellbook, but they must have succeeded on all tasks leading up to the actual writing.
I did, however, find the following in the PHB glossary:

1. I don't know whether the glossary is considered to be full/legitimate rules text, seeing as it's not reflected anywhere in the SRD that I can find.
2. It's unclear or counterintuitive in some cases. For instance, if a wizard loses their spellbook, do they still "know" the spells that were in it (though either way they can't prepare them without the book)?

Re: [3.5] Wizard Spells Known
A wizards spells known are in his spellbook. If you loose this, it doesn't disqualify you for things that require spells known however.
There are things that allow you to have spells known without a spellbook. The most known way is Spell Mastery.Admiral Cranthis, Inventor of the Cranthis (Sandwich) and the Gnomish Paratroopers, and rider of Chuckles, the dire pig.
