Many thanks for this answer. Just one more question...how do I create the legacy help page?

Every time you launch the old help system, it rebuilds the index. Since there's so little content in the legacy system, rebuilding it every time is quick and painless. If you're creating a new, paclet-based help page, then there's nothing to rebuild. It should just work. If this isn't helpful, then some more details about what exactly you're doing would certainly be in order. Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
