This seems like a better direction to go than the help.xml files; I  
think bundling a static HTML version of the help with the app makes  
sense also, since the current XML format gives us pretty much no  
benefit except for the crude searching - how would we do search with  

On the other end, I guess we'd need an organizational standard for  
naming translations of the help docs, and version numbers. How do you  
suggest we deal with translations? Now at least we have the ability to  
make sure that an untranslated version of each help "item" is present.
