10.3 Online Help and Other Documentation

elvis is very interesting in this department. The online help is comprehensive, and written entirely in HTML. This makes is easy to view in your favorite Web browser. elvis also has an HTML display mode (discussed below), making it easy and pleasant to view the online help from within elvis itself.

When viewing HTML files, you use the tag commands (^] and ^T ) to go to different topics and then return, making it easy to browse the help files. We applaud this innovation in online help.

Of course, elvis also comes with UNIX man pages.
