Depends on everything else regarding the design. Generally, you'd want a tweeter with a lower Fs to have the ability to cross lower to a mid/woofer (very typical with 2-way designs). The opposite is true for crossing higher, although it doesn't really hurt anything to have a lower Fs if crossing higher...just that the tweeter's resonant freqency shouldn't be a big factor of your buying decision in these circumstances.

What kind of info are you looking for exactly? What specs do you not understand? Just Thiele-Small parameters? Graphs of some sort?

In any case, www.google.com should be a good starting point.
