Hmmm. options(htmlhelp = TRUE) does nothing for me. I still get ?lm in an
emacs buffer. Of course, I'm using help.start(), but Martin seems to be using
something else; what is that? By the way, is anyone else bothered by the
sporadic highlighting of the 'for's, 'in's, 'switch's, etc. of their output.
Shouldn't just the input be highlighted, i.e. lines that start with '>' or '+'?
