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.

      StyleBox["\<\"Find out about coordinate transformations\"\>",
      ButtonStyle->"AddOnsLink"]], "Input"]

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