Re: Re: Re: to those interested in * finding * Mathematica help


I probably should have said that the keyword "mhelp" should be in the
keyword field, not in the field for the bookmark name.

To verify:
right click your bookmark and hit properties
then check that the fields read as follows:

Name:
Mathematica Documentation Search
Location:
http://www.google.com/search?q=%s+site%3Adocuments.wolfram.com+inurl%3Amathematica&sourceid=mozilla-search
Keyword:
mhelp
Description:
Online Mathematica Documentation and Mathematica Book Search of Latest Version

The name and description fields don't matter. Anyway, once the
bookmark is set up like that, typing "mhelp NVariationalBound" into
the address bar (not the search bar, just in case) should find the one
page that has a reference to it in the current documentation.
