 I'm running OLPC's build os852 (10.1.2 that incorporates Sugar 0.84.16) on
 an XO-1.

 Help v.11 does not have a View menu, so I can't zoom in and out.  The
 default text size is pretty small.  And the keyboard accelerators Ctrl-+/-
 don't work either.

 It seems the fix would be to copy the View menu from
 Browse.activity/viewtoolbar.py and Ctrl-+/- from

 The workaround is to view the Help activity's HTML in Browse. Its starting
 URL is file:///home/olpc/Activities/Help.activity/XO_Introduction.html .
 (Rainbow security may prevent Browse accessing this, I can't remember if I
 made changes.)

 Note that Help doesn't adapt its layout properly when you resize and
 rotate, because http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/8513 is still present, two
 years after I provided the 4-line CSS fix :-(
