To show the keyboard shortcuts page for the Desktop Help for instance,
you can just run
ghelp is the protocol and I believe points to /usr/share/gnome/help/
then the name of the folder/package, and finally the specific page you
want separated from the above by a question mark.
To see what page you're currently looking at in Yelp, hit Ctrl+L which
is a hidden power feature in Yelp. Actually, unless I'm mistaken, it's
a little funny that the help viewer itself doesn't have help. But
switching Gnome to the new Mallard format help is a huge undertaking
and there's still plenty of work left to be done.
