[my 3p]

+1 to have more prominent link to the 
http://wiki.freepascal.org/Installing_Help_in_the_IDE page - 
my proposition : right below the DOWNLOADS link on home page,
and have lhelp point to it when it can't find the help files.

+1 to include a mention of other help formats on that page

plus my own propositions : 
++ provide cross-links to documentation packages across SourceForge download area,
version-related to the appropriate install package,
++ have a self-extracting exe that installs the [chm or html or inf] 
files in the path where lhelp expects them (on windows)
++ include the help files of whatever choice, in the installation package
(for windows)
++ have them packaged in rpm/deb/whatever for the linux distro of choice to be able to
find main and doc updates automatically.

(reason : am I the only one that downloads and runs whatever the pre-packaged
installable version is, rather than svn/git ???)
