Neat!  Especially the fact that it ties together man pages with online
help, so any improvement to the man page flows through to the
application, independently of the application.

I guess the component could even do some version checking, if the
develoepr chose to worry about that.

Wish they had screenshots there.  I loved the UI when it was written in
Tk3, but felt that the usability dropped when it got updated to
Tk4/Tcl7, all those years ago.  I confess that I then simply stopped
using it. :-(

I should download and try the current one, which may have been improved
since then!
