In the query tool, it would be good if the program links to the latest help
screens for the context-sensitive (F1) help. You are currently pointing to
8.3, whereas I'm running 8.4. It would be best to provide an entry in the
Options dialog, allowing the user to point to a desired location, either a
local install file (my preference), or one at Postgresql. Thus, PGAdmin
would point as desired, regardless of which engine the user chose for that

This sounds like it might be related to a copy/paste issue that Ashesh
has sent me a patch for. Ashesh, can you check that please?

If I'm honest, I prefer the positive alert for the second message. I
could be swayed on the first though.

Ashesh, can you investigate that as well please?

That's from when the PG docs used to be in the same HTML Help file.
I've changed those links to point to the PostgreSQL website.
Unfortunately I don't see any way to point them to the actual help
source without implementing our own version of the help browser.
