   Bug: Link under Heading "Search with Keywords" behind 
        "How Cool are Custom Keywords?" leads to not existing page
        <http://www.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/keywords.html>

a) contents is still available at <http://www-archive.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/keywords.html>, I haven't yet checked whether that still is useful.

The archived content at www-archive looks useful. Examples for lxr and dmoz don't work anymore, but the others do work.

On the other hand, looking at the help itself, the part where the link is already describes this feature (both with and without %s), so perhaps in this case the link could be simply removed?

This was discussed on IRC today and another option would be to link to a MozillaZine KB article (mentioned by frg):
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_keyword_searches

What do you think?

What do you think?

KIll it unless IanN thinks otherwise.

I'm happy for it to link to the mozillazine article, but not sure we need the cool terminology.

A patch to link to the mozillazine kb instead.

l10n patch: when nav_help.xhtml is in English, apply the same changes as in comm-central. For translated files, replace the address and page title.
(In Hungarian, this removes the translated page title.)
