I'm just not living right... Camino loads up fine, but I cannot search for
anything on the R help page. I'm not sure what the problem is. Several folks
have reported this in the past with the last solution I found to be to use
Netscape 7.0 or earlier. Yet I see folks talking about using Safari or
Camino successfully, but it does not happen for me. Thanks for your
comments, though!

Cheers, George
