Unfortunately I have not been able to access this page yet. Are the
permissions set correctly?

I'll stop my whining about work around now (Blush) :)

True enough.

Just a note: At the moment I am looking at some other stuff and trying to
get my focus off of xhelp. If SEUL decides that current help programs do not
do what we want then perhaps xhelp is the solution. Meanwhile I am working
on it a bit but not focussing on it (though I DO use it, so it will still be
worked on to suit my needs). If it is decided that the existing help systems
are enough (eg. KDE's or gnome's help systems) then there is no need for
much focus (by SEUL) on xhelp at all.
