Introduction; Setting Up New Browser Categories; Adding Entries to the Master Index; Creating Hyperlinks to the Help Browser

The Help Browser provides convenient access to all of Mathematica's online documentation. You can browse through a hierarchy of topics or search for information on a specific keyword. You can also edit and evaluate the examples or print any topic displayed in the Help Browser, just like in a notebook.

A little-known feature of the Help Browser is that you can customize it. You can add your own reference material to the existing help files, add your own keywords to the Master Index, or set up hyperlinks between different categories of the Help Browser. You can even change the names and number of the buttons at the top of the Help Browser.
