[PD] Revising Help Files

Ok, a couple of questions before I get deeper into the revisions:

1. Should help patches be tailored for font sizes other than 10? 
It might be feasible to do this for size 12 fonts, but it will make 
patches look worse at size 10.  For example, to accommodate 12pt 
fonts, paragraphs and comments to the right of objects will have to 
be given more padding, which looks awkward at 10pts.  If there's no 
padding, objects and paragraphs will collide when you try to 
enlarge the fonts.

2.  The "description:" comment isn't long enough for some of the 
descriptions, which I think are already reasonably short (e.g., 
czero_rev~).  It would fit without the word "description", but I'm 
guessing this would cause problems for the future search 
functionality that's been discussed.  Any ideas?  I could just 
duplicate the description in the pd-meta subpatch but that's kind 
of awkward.
