First off, I think the nice thing about the previous templates has  
been that the main juice of information was viewable from just  
opening the help patch. Where as here, one have to click about to get  
the info.

There can be examples where the description take up a lot of space  
why dividing it into bit might be a good idea. But as long as one can  
scroll down, i'm not sure how needed it is. I wonder what's in page 2  
and 3 of template 9.

I've got a few questions too:
- What is [wiki] for?
- What happens when on click one of that tabs, say, outlets? Does a  
sup-patch open or does the desired info emerge in the current patch?
- Is there any practical use for the [pd PAGES] sub-patch when  
browsing the help-patch?
- What's the status of the font issue?

Other then that, it looks nice. Your work is much appreciated.
