Hello Svante,

Please copy the following cell expression, paste it into a notebook,
click yes on the resulting message box, then click on the newly created
button. This will open the help browser with information which should
be useful to you.

Cell[BoxData[
    ButtonBox[
      StyleBox["\<\"Find out about coordinate transformations\"\>",
        ShowStringCharacters->False],
      ButtonData:>"Calculus`VectorAnalysis`",
      Active->True,
      ButtonStyle->"AddOnsLink"]], "Input"]


(I can't remember whom I stole this idea from, but I hope he doesn't
mind.)

greetings,

Paul A. Rombouts <P.A.Rombouts at phys.uu.nl>
