I think your "another CRAN package for mathjax" approach is better
than modifying the base R's code. I am trying to find the possible
way to implement it.

It seems that I triggered a strange issue (or, a bug is ESS?). I run
exactly the same commands in EMACS+ESS and then I got the error
messages shown in my last mail. Now, I try to do the same things
but, at this time, I run the commands in a terminal (gnome-terminal),
then, everything works properly, as you expected (I can see the
packages and functions list with nice CSS layout in the browser).
This issue is quite weird, and I think it is caused by Emacs or ESS
but not the helpr package. I still need to do several test to figure
out what really causes it.
