I have been using POV-Ray for years when teaching and introduction to Astronomy
class. The computers in our lab have just been upgraded to windows 8 and POV-Ray
itself seems to be working great. However the built in help system does not seem
to allow students to select and display specific topic book marks. For example
they can do a search for the topic describing colors.inc but when they double
click on the topic or click on the display button, the window does not go to the
selected part of the help documentation.

From my own experience (with Win 7 but also before with XP) the 
built-in help is far from working well. Many links are broken or 
misdirected. Best is to use the online help at the wiki site.
