keyboard help navigation

If I hit Alt+h to bring up the help menu, then press c to bring up the
Documentation Center, it seems that there is no focus for the keyboard
caret. This makes it difficult (impossible?) to start searching
without using the mouse.

Bonus question:
Using only the keyboard, how do I follow the hyperlink provided at the
end of a help message such as that generated by the input
"?StringExpression" ?

I am running Windows XP SP 2 and Mathematica 6.0.1

In[36]:= {$Version, $ReleaseNumber, Internal`$CreationID}

Out[36]= {"6.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (June 19, 2007)", 1, "876011"}

Thank you,
