Dear R developers,

?help.search

...opens a tab in my browser (Firefox 3.5.6, Win XP):

http://127.0.0.1:31642/library/utils/html/help.search.html

When I click on the link for "?",
(http://127.0.0.1:31642/library/utils/help/?) in the last line of "Details", I get an error message:

"Server error: invalid response from R".

Similarly,

The link to "??" (http://127.0.0.1:31642/library/utils/help/??) found under http://127.0.0.1:31642/library/utils/html/help.html "See also" gives same error message.

On the other hand, in the help text for "help" (http://127.0.0.1:31642/library/utils/html/help.html) the link to "?", found under "See also", is
http://127.0.0.1:31642/library/utils/html/Question.html, which seems to be the correct link.

I did not manage to find anything on this topic in recent bug reports on "Documentation" and "Documentation fixed".

Best regards,

Henrik Pärn
