Improving existing guides
All guides of all modules should get navigation links to easily click through to the next/previous/parent page. You can submit an idea how to define a consecutive order for the existing guides.
As a developer with good programming skills and much energy and time, you can help to improve the Help in many ways. For example, we would like to improve the Help Viewer to fully support the Gecko rendering engine.
Standardisation of Help source files
Some help sources and related files need to be brought fully in line with the current specifications. See Help: Standardisation issues.
