If the included help file was 'just' HTML, I would fix it myself. But alas, it's
compiled :-(

(A little side note: I can actually open the help file--in its entirety-- in
Windoze Wordpad. The contents are meaningless of course, mostly symbols. But It
doesn't open likewise in POV-Ray-- just one little 'word.' I thought POV was
robust enough to open and display just about any 'programming language.' But
then again, I'm somewhat naive about 'compiled' languages ('somewhat'?? That's
an understatement!!) ;-)
