?? I can visit file:///home/olpc/Activities/Help.activity/help/XO_Introduction.html
fine in Browse in 8.2.1. (Does having a developer key affect Rainbow

I think a prominent help icon and "Need help?" text on Browse's start
page would be far more discoverable than a (?) among many, but I live
in the browser.
The OLPC 8.2.1 start page is
Code rebuilds the nifty expanding Library of local content whenever
you install content, see http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Library , this
could also detect installation of local help.
The SugarLabs start page is
Sugar distributions lack the expanding Library (SL ticket 574) but
maybe that's moot if http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Library
comes to fruition.
file system or not and create a link to it accordingly; seems-to-work
code is at http://www.skierpage.com/olpc/show_help.html
