I released an alpha version for the help activity in french:


I've worked a lot on the HTML pages.  I ditched the flossmanuals layout
as much as possible, I think it takes too much space on the page.

I think it woudn't make sense to always have a '?' in the frame.

Rather, activity developers could decide whether the activity has its
own '?' somewhere in the menu (near the 'Quit' button?).  Which would
mean each developer would be responsible for writing documentation 
for its activity...

Every user likes to have a "help" button for an activity, wherever they
come from.
