Student or Learner
I learned that "of" is for an instant short information that reminds you of something, while "about" is for detailed information for contemplation.
But in the following example, even if we replace it with "about", does it mean the same thing? Or do they use both "known about" and "known of" without virtually any difference?
ex)Until the late 1800s, almost nothing was known of the deep ocean.
