I understand that no one wanted to maintain the old Help, but one feature I used extensively -- as a newbie to R or to an unfamiliar package -- was the capability of searching for a word or phrase on the Help page itself. Ctrl-F/Command-F (Windows/mac) 'differently-phrased-capability' was a fast way to find out how to specify the arguments for a function call to accommodate a "capability" phrased differently than could be found in the author's designed argument list, especially for long and informative Help's. If new-Help could easily be enhanced to resurrect that feature, I believe many users would appreciate it. Thanks.
