I suggest you take a look at the ultra-compact ultra-fast dillo web browser (http://dillo.cipsga.org.br) too. I have sometimes found it handy to get help on R functions outside of R using this browser, by defining the "rhlp" command in Linux/bash as
dillo file:`locate -r "/usr/lib/R/.*/$1.html" | head -1` &
I'm sure you could use dillo from within R also. -Frank
