In fact search features (including "F1" fast search) are especially 
essential to the usability of a help system.

As discussed some months ago: When e.g. Wiki is used to have users 
crate/updates help information, I suppose some special definitions need 
to be defined on  top of the usual Wiki stuff to allow for search 
support and for cross references to help information that is generated 
by other tools.
