(<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://teitac.org/wiki/Documentation:Draft_Submission">http://teitac.org/wiki/Documentation:Draft_Submission</a>), in section 3
(Other Material) item B: </font><font face="Albany"><span

It was not included in the official submitted draft #1 since we had not
discussed it. The comment was submitted by Jim Tobias. The text is:<br>
"</font>Context-sensitive help is another important feature. For
pressing F1 in some computer applications launches a help window that
is already focused on what the user is trying to do."<br>
Many programs already implement this. Do we want to have a standard
that requires it?<br>
