I got it.
Perhaps it would be useful to have another startup option, something like: options(htmlLinksResolve=TRUE)

that one could use in the .First() function from .Rprofile

I tried using help.start() in .Rprofile, but it throws a (probably obvious) error:
Error: could not find function "help.start"

For my personal purposes, all questions have been answered though. Thank you very much,
Adrian
